    You should ask @Deon07..just saw his Thread and it looks like he has a Nigger Trigger so maybe he will know what can co-exist with a Nigger Trigger..and what doesn't..hope this helps...

    Basically what I have with him:

    Dog Face
    Regal Tang
    Picasso Trigger (They use to be ok but because I am selling had to move some rocks so they not buddies anymore)
    Wrasses
    Fox
    Cardinals
    Chromis
    Uhmmmm, check my dog fish for sale: got a list there of all the fish I had, well still have some of them left

    oooo, no snails or shrimps will survive. Not sure who has a bigger feast, the trigger or the dog fish

    I kept a Niger in a mixed reef without any hassles....on the other hand some guys have had bad luck.

    One thing you need to bear in mind , your tank is quite small and you have 2 heavy feeders already, so I would not add too many fish

    Firstly that tanks is too small to keep a Niger trigger, if its still tiny all good and well...but long term waaay too small.

    What can be kept with it, in most cases anything...very few I have read of and in my experience with one of my own do any harm to fish, corals or inverts...they generally do more harm to the reef keeper :p that being said I would worry about its aggressiveness in that size tank.
    the lionfish does limit you though with regards to keeping shrimps, hermits, snails that sort of thing. You know the lion is going to need live food right?

    Good luck mate, personally for a 150l tank I would have gone with a different choice of fish.
