Compatibility question on stocking a 75g
Hey all. I currently have a 75g setup as freshwater that I will be converting to saltwater. I've always wanted a lionfish ever since I was a kid. I Eason my Lfs the other day and hey had a decent sized volitan lionfish for sale. Seeing that fish made me want to convert and get one. I only want to do fish and live rock, no coral. Here are the few fish that I like and would like to get. From the info I found on liveaquarias site they should get along
Red stripe angelfish
I would like to possibly get one more fish but once it is setup and all I will look for another tankmate. If any of these aren't compatible the lionfish will stay regardless and I will find other tankmmates that are compatible.

I'm afraid that stocking list will not work. There would not be enough room for all of them in the same 75 gallon tank and you have a mixture of aggressive and non-aggressive fish.
Perhaps a smaller tang, like a kole tang would work better. I would not add more than one other fish as the russles will get pretty big and needs hiding spots within the live rock. That will limit your available swimming space for other fishIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
