    Iv good 2 green spotted puffers and a fugu puffer I'm sum what trying to find a new home for. The fish stores sell them at fresh water but when u do research they live in salt water and go up stream to bread. So that's were they r mistaken for fresh water. They only get about 6 inches but it's food for thought I'm happy to give them a good home.

    Don't Twin Spots get big and need a deep sand bed? No real knowledge on those though.

    I really looked at getting a Pink face a while back. So cool looking.
    But they do get a bit mean and territorial, so you have to add them last.
    But since I never found one actually in stock, decision was moot.

    I like all the other ones on the list. I had a Mystery Wrasse as well for a while. Great fish.

    Just a thought:
    If you just stick to these :
    antennata lionfish (or two)
    snowflake eel (or a couple)
    harlequin tusk
    Mystery Wrasse

    It opens you up to more peaceful/semi-agressive mid-size angels and others.
    * Regal Angelfish
    * Magnificent Foxface (I have one. They are peaceful, but can easily fend off aggressive fish)

    Thanks, those are both great ideas. But if I did that, what would be the staging of the fish

    thinking Lion fish, tusk and eel at 1st, then maybe the foxface or angel then the wrasse?

    Not sure.
    Opinion: Look at which is the most territorial, not the most aggressive, and add those last.
    It will vary depending on what size/age you manage to find also.

    The randomness of what you can actually find in store/online messes with the best of your planning.
