Stocking Ideas for 125g FOWLR?

Well I think it's about time to get something new in my 125g, but I'm not sure wat! I would love any ideas! I've been thinking about a Picasso Trigger, but I got a couple skunk cleaner shrimp which my wife and I love to watch and a trigger MIGHT mean the end of them. It's a 6 foot, 125 gallon with 40 gallon sump/fuge.

Current stocking list:
2.5" Yellow tang
2.5" One-spot Foxface Rabbitfish
3" Dogface Pufferfish
1.5" Sixline Wrasse
2" Black & White Occ. Clownfish
(2) Large Skunk Cleaner Shrimp
A handful of mixed hermit crabs
(3) Golfball sized turbo snails, (2) Nassarius snails, and a few other mixed snails

I would like to get an anemone sometime down the road, but it's not a necessity cuz with my luck he'd find a home on the backside of my rock and I'd never see him. Im open to any options! I want something with a lot of color and rather active. I wouldn't mind going the direction of a predator tank, but once again I'm not sure how the cleaners would do then.

Does anyone think a Humu Humu Picasso trigger would be ok with the cleaners? I've read mixed reviews about them where some people say they wouldn't last with a trigger, then ive read where people say cleaners are the exception and end up cleaning the triggers and never have a problem.

Thanks in advance!

How about a Harlequin Tusk? Not sure how they are with shrimp though.

I like that idea! After a little research on them, I think theyd be ok with the shrimp. It looks like snails are the ones to worry about with those, but I don't mind replacing those. They're cheap, and Premium Aquatics always has a lot of big ones in stock if I need them for cheap.

I have a full on predator tank and it is the most fun tank I have ever had. I recommend one with triggers puffers lions and groupers and maybe some eels.

I actually have had a dwarf zebra lionfish on order from premium aquatics for about a month. Just playing the waitin game now. I really like that idea. All my favorite fish are predators, and I think I've got enough space to be able to do the lion, triggers, an some eels... Not sure if I've got room for any groupers yet tho unfortunately cuz I love the panther grouper

PS:
A yellow tang an foxface would be able to hold their own in with a few predators, right?

Fox face should be fine with predators. Not sure about the yellow tang.

Does anyone have any experience keeping Picasso Humu Triggers with cleaner shrimp by chance?
