Lionfish Tankmate

Would a black volitans lionfish be compatable with an undulated triggerfish?

30 gallon-2 black mollies, 1 red wag platy, 1 dwarf gourami, 2 giant danios, 3 marble hatchets

125 gallon- 1 black ghost knife, 1 senegal bichir, 1 blue jack dempsey, 1 needle nose gar, 1 red tailed shark

NO. That trigger would destroy that fish. No trigger should be kept with any other fish especially that kind.

I agree 50% with usmc121581.

Undulated triggers should be for the most part kept alone. There are many community triggers around that would do fine with species like wrasse and tang type fish.

You should not mix triggers and lions together at all. Lions are very slow moving fish and can/will be picked apart by triggers.
