    what else do u have in your predator tank, im contemplating a predator tank for one day when i grow up:) as im totally in awe of predators, im thinking lions, triggers, maybe a ray of sorts, and then a scorpion fish.

    Triggers & Lions in the same tank...mmm not the best of ideas, triggers will nip on the lion, rays a big no no in my view. I currently only have a dedicated trigger tank and it is also home to the resident "durban Special" (snowflake eel)

    I guess then ill have to build two seprate tanks next to each other, one for triggers and one for lions. As for the ray i know what u mean needs lots of sand and speacialised food. Out of intrest what cleanup crew did you decide on with your predator tank?

    Called the human hand ..LOL, no very little options in terms of CUC, I have a few large snails, and massive hermits, but even they tend to 'go places"

    As for the ray, not just the feeding & husbandry that is a concern I am an avid shark lover (these guys have been around millions of years), I just find it TOTALLY wrong. I actually decided not to buy from a supplier because they sell shark & ray
