A queen trigger but my corals would not be so happy and I only have a 55 so the fish would not be happy either

Blue-faced angel
Clown Trigger
LionFish

My 45g tank wouldn't be anywhere suitable for these and I don't think my fish would be quote so hearty to me if I introduced a Lion to the tank partially because I doubt I would see them again!

I would love to have an Achilles tang but don't have a big enough tank.

For the tank I have I would love to have a powder brown tang. I've always wanted a puffer fish due to my last name being puffer however I prefer to keep things reef safe. Always loved the mandarin dragonettes and will be getting one again soon.

I have one on your list. My miniatus grouper is awesome!! Unfortunately he grew faster than the panther grouper in the first pic and ate him. Not good. But lesson learned, gotta feed that guy quite a bit. And get fish much bigger than he is.

1. Dr Suess Soapfish
2. Pacific Spiny Lumpsucker
3. Any type of batfish
4. Leafy sea dragon (obviously not happening)
5. Moorish idol

2 and 3 are obtainable, just need much different setups. 1 is way out of my price range EVER unless I win the lottery, 4 is illegal and 5 are too hard for me to keep right now. Maybe in a few years i would like to try.

1. Stingray
2. Volitan Lion
3. Achilles Tang
4. Blue throated Trigger
5. Snowflake eel

The Stingray will probably never happen but when I have my house built I will make room for multiple tanks to run off of a central fuge. Predators in one and then my reef in the other

You should post us a pic of that Dr. Seuss fish, how bad would it be if you bought it and it died in a week!
