well you cant have the large predator fish with the small fish. so you need to decide what you want more.

yeah it needs to either be freindly or predatorial. You will lose all your small fish if you put an eel or lion fish in there.

But, Andre, according to his post, he has two stocking list options unless you are talking about the dragonette instead.

Edit: Never you mind. There's a wishlist but no lionfish unfortunately in your tank.:) They do eat smaller fish when I had one before.:)

one is a deffinite list and one is a dream list. I was thinking he meant he would like to get the others just a different day.

damn...even if i kept the eel well fed in a corner it would still go after those fish? they r pretty fast fish wouldnt think an eel is to fast...as for the lion fish/triggers yea i know they r preditory even if i put heaps of LR so the smaller fish could get around without being hassled is out of the question?

you still cant do it. no matter what you try to do the predatory fish will kill your smaller peacefull fish.
