    Hey i have a boyu tl550. I have just sold my livestock as i want to get a FOWLR tank going. I need to know what fish i can put in a 130litre nano??

    I would really like a small picasso triggerfish, some sort of angelfish, a small lionfish or a copperband. What do you guys think??

    Thanks

    that tank is NOT nearly big enough for the clown triggerfish...

    You could house 1 small fuzzy dwarf lionfish - ALONE in the TL-550

    Look at the dwarf angelfish - flameback (jumping bean), black bean, flame angel, lemonpeel angel to name a few...

    However they get aggressive so if you are going that route I would also only stick to a single dwarf angel fish in that tank - it's only 34G

    corlyle1 - my mistake, however a picasso triggerfish is roughly the same size as a clown trigger so you need at least a 2 metre tank to keep it happy.

    You might think 1 fish whats the point, but if you want to keep these big species etc give them a home that will be suitable. Keeping any of the fish you are asking about is like asking to keep a great dane in a shoebox...

    Make sure your fish don't get pic. Cleaner shrimps are cool or maybe a firefish or a blenny

    Try some chromis and a midas blenny or fire fish, etc. I personally don't think your tank is suitable for a copperband, their mortality rates are friggin low and you need to be very experienced to keep one alive... sorry but i can't see one surviving in a nano.
