    for a predator tank Ill think of adding a skimmer thats a little better as you will be feeding a little more than a regular fish only tank.

    you need a good skimmer because predators crap a lot. I think you could keep a lion, trigger and foxface in a such a tank. Predators are aggro and the tank is small so you will be limited on the number of fish. The trigger is the aggro one but because the fox face and lion have venomous spines the trigger will probably leave them alone ... Hope that helped :)
