Well the triggers may be ok, clown triggers can be brutal. The shark and ray depend on the way your tank is scaped. Unless you have a huge sandbed I wouldn't do the ray or shark. Actually I wouldn't do the ray at all. Is the tank 8 feet? Edit: a cat shark may work depending on the tanks dimensions

How old is this tank? it looks very clean so i am assuming it is quite new.

When did you put in the other fish? The fish you are planning and currently stocking have huge bioloads so you should most likely wait a bit between additions.

i would skip the shark and sting ray though, it doesnt seem like you have much of a san bed for the ray and the shark can be tricky in a 6 foot tank, unless this is an 8 footer.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Just the glass is about 4 feet tall an 7 1/2 8 feet long an yes I have a large sand bed.. Yea I've heard the clown trigger can be brutal I'm just wondering if I get him sum what small maybe 2 inches an put him in with the huma huma if they will all get along with the niger trigger an blue hippo.. The blue hippo is a baby around inch an a half maybe 2 inches big.. An I was wondering if they will all be good with the ray and shark as well

The tank is about 3 months old an yea I was gonna re arrange the rock so there's more of a big big sand bed.. I currently have a 12x twist uv steralizer an the aqua c ev-180 protine skimmer a sock for the overflow and a filter over the return pump.. Was also thinking of getting a phosban phosphate 550 as well but starting this off I think is ok for awhile..

Hmm I'd let it settle for at least another month before you put another fish in. That's a lot for 3 months. It should take close to a year to stock that tank. Do you have a sump, it doesn't look like that much in the main tank, is there a bunch in the sump?
