don't vlamgingi's grow freakishly large..and fast ? Surprised you dont' want an angel.

Coris wrasse = good idea .. wonder how the lunare wrasse will react though .. aim for 5"+

I would definitley stay away from the clown trigger. As it ages, it is going to become very aggressive and likely kill some if not all of the other tankmates.

i cant get rid of the clown trigger i had him since it was TINY and it was the reason for the bigger tank. i want to see him change some more. my good friend josh has a vlamingi in his 180 and its beautiful. ill probably do 2 or 3 more fish and thats it. thanks guys and more suggestions are welcome

How about an eel. Zebra moray would be sweet looking

5''dogface puffer x 2

I wouldn't put 2 of these in the same tank. Just the adult size alone wouldn't fit a 180.

I'd add a few pretty damsels for spikes of blue and yellow. They also eat the tidbits left behind from the trigger. Like a cleaning crew for triggers!

I also would suggest an angel or 2 and skip the puffers...unless you really like puffers. They just eat a ton and mess a ton.

I get the idea the puffers are already in the tank.
