Stocking ??

I just bought a black and white damsel in my 90 gallon. Now I am trying to figure out if I should add : Niger trigger, kole tang or lionfish .....

Aggressive-trigger lionfish. That damsel, which is aggressive is too small (if not now real soon) to live with the trigger and lionfish.

There are several black and while damsels some are more aggressive than the others but they won't stand a chance against a hungry lion fish.

The damsel would be a nice snack for the lion.

What about the damsel's aggression with triggers, tangs and/or clown percula?

Volitan lions cannot be kept in 90g tanks. 125+ for them as they get to be a possible 15in. You could do a dwarf lion if that damsel was gone. I would say (and FTMMWS) that no trigs should be kept under 125g. The kole tang would be perfect.
