    You can keep the trigger and the surgeon, though they're both aggressive species. Trigger is particularly nasty, even as triggers go. Also gets huge. They're both quite scarce catches though, so I'm sure someone would be interested in them if you're not.

    I'd avoid the shrimpfish because they're very specialised and need constant live food like a seahorse or pipefish.

    Throw back the damsel, they're horrible things.
