I really wanted to add a lionfish or two, but I have read Horrible stories! ....what are the best tank mates for a Picasso triggerfish ? It's in a 240 gallon! & he is only 3"

Don't add any Catshark species the Picasso Trigger will bite eyes of the Shark. Personally had this happen to a Catshark I had in the aquarium with a small Picasso Trigger. Warned a lfs to remove a Queen Trigger out of a aquarium with Catsharks they ignored me so went back a couple of weeks later and sharks were missing eyes. I was very upset at the employee for not listening to me. Maybe a small Grouper species will be ok.

I kept dog face puffer and harlequin tuskfish with mine without any problems.
Aggressive eater though. I had to take care that the puffer got something to eat.

The one I had may have been an anomaly, he was spitting water at me and ate in the bucket while acclimating, before it was ever added to the tank.
