I got puffer fish, angels, and butterfly fish.

I couldn’t take it anymore. All the fish I want were not reef safe, and I care more about fish than corals (even though I love corals).

Tank is 300g and I have a sand bed.

What do I do regarding clean up crew? Since the livestock I’m having will eat invertebrates etc.

I have a lot of algae rock grazers. My issue is the detritus and waste. In addition to siphoning the sandbed, is there any inhabitant that can help me out?

I plan on getting a lion fish as well, but my main emphasis is on the angels and butterfly fish.

You may just want to replenish snails regularly... let them use the snails to file down their teethe. I can't wait to see your tank... all my favorite fish!!

Right now I am using a high-flow (24”) overflow box, protein skimmer, and a UV sterilizer in my 150 FOWLER, feed very heavily, and hardly have to clean the glass. So thankfully, I am skipping the CUC. They wouldn’t make it past my Clown Trigger, for one.
