Ok well I'm set on a lionfish of some description and I'm leaning towards an eel and a angler, aside from that though I'm looking at a couple more things. In my sump I have 4 sections I was thinking on putting a skimmer (possibly a magus bubble c5 unless anyone has better suggestions) and a heater in section 1, a section with deep sand bed some macro algae and maybe a few shrimp in section 2, live rock in section 3 and return pump in section 4 does this sound ok fr a fowlr tank or have I missed anything.

I am also looking into lighting I am considering a few mushrooms in there but nothing to difficult to care for would two 54 watt t5s with something to reflect the light into the tank e sufficient?

I had a full grown lion fish and a two foot long snowflake in a 55 for years. Both ate frozen silversides, and not each other. Anything else in the tank was fair game.

It was a Volitan. It got pretty cramped. Luckily the lion fish didn't move around much. The moray was another thing. He was really cramped once he got big.

About football size. Had snails, stars, the usual. They didn't bother them.

No crabs or shrimp. Both would eat them eventually. The corals are no problem. Mushrooms would be a good choice.
