I am thinking about someday getting a 300 gallon aquarium. I am thinking about getting a Nigerian triggerfish, Picasso triggerfish, blue line grouper, a smaller species of lion fish, and a snowflake eel. Somebody tell me if this is to much fish. I’m not really a saltwater tank person but this would just be a dream tank for me someday.

Picasso Triggerfish are mischievous so don't know how long that would work. I suggest giving the Snow Flake Moray a place to take refuge to such as dead coral.

So if I didn’t get the Picasso trigger could I have more fish or not.

I’d stick with the first guys and add if it looks like you can. Maybe an angel or tang.

Thanks. So I should just stick to The first fish I said.
Probably. I would only suggest that a lot of those fish tend to be hard to keep alive for beginners to saltwater. If you are interested in marine it’s great to try a nano with a clown pair just to learn the basics of marine tanks.
Your tank sounds like my saltwater dream tank though! Just add a shark lol!

Yes stick with that list but keep I on Picasso for aggressive behavior. Also note the Triggerfish, Grouper, and Snowflake Moray will have to be large enough so that the Lionfish can't swallow them.

If you decide to do a Catshark please don't add Triggerfish they will go for the shark eyes.
This personally happened to a Bamboo Shark I kept temporarily with a Picasso Triggerfish.
