Saltwater predator fish tank
The majority of the time, when you think of an aquarium, you imagine smaller multihued fish comparable to neon tetras or clownfish, not Triggerfish. In the end, these fish tanks are still thought of as reasonably rare. This is chiefly because these fish do not get along with smaller varieties and will probably wind up consuming them in the long run.
Which is why those that intend to set up a predator aquarium have to select their livestock carefully. It matters not if we were talking about marine or freshwater setups. Smaller species are almost always avoided except for certain types of cleaner fish. Any crustaceans present are sure to end up as an expensive meal in the long run.
If you’re keen on large marine species, then you need an equally large tank. Groupers, moray eels and triggerfish all require only the largest aquariums to do well in the long run. While they may be sold in small sizes during purchase, they will quickly grow far too large for small aquariums.
The next important aspect that needs to be addressed is the biological filter. Especially since predators consume a enormous amount of food daily. They are also known to be messy eaters. Because such fish are also quite territorial, it is important to introduce the most aggressive ones last. Larger fish like the Titan Triggerfish will undoubtedly be the most aggressive fish in the aquarium.
Several predators including lionfish, groupers and moray eels are often kept with corals as they have no interest in them. Certain kinds of parrotfish will make short work of your stony corals so you might want to pass on them. Triggerfish are also known to move liverock around the aquarium to suit its needs.
For those with a taste for the exotic, the venomous scorpionfish, anglerfish as well as lionfish may fit the bill.
Although the vemon from lionfish are not lethal, they are very painful. Be careful of scorpionfish in particular as their venom is really quite potent and will cause quite a bit of pain when injected. On the other hand, large triggerfish may be very aggressive even to their keepers and can inflict bites strong enough to break the skin.

Goldfish. There are several vital dyes that are relatively safe for FRESHWATER fish with ich (I know nothing about saltwater fishes) that are sold in pet stores: methylene blue is very safe for fishes but kills plants. There is a more commonly used drug now, malachite green, which is safe for plants and fairly safe for most fishes. But I believe a few kinds of FW fishes have trouble with it.
If I remember right, you don't have to change the water after using M.G., it naturally breaks down. But you will after M.B., first because it stains the water a deep blue, second because of your plants
