What fish can I keep in my 240 gallon tank. I every set with no ich or anything.
The fish I have are
: 2 lion fish a dwarf and a voilent

: 3 lawnmower blennies

: 6 cleaner wrasse

: 4 angels, a six bar, queen, king, and empor

: 4 triggers, clown, Picasso, and a male and female blue throu

: 1 white spotted grouper

: 1 flame hawkfish

: 2 eels, a zebra and white spotted

: 2 puffers, a porcupine and a dogface

That’s all I have. In a perfect world I would want a moon, saddled, sunset, or leopard wrasse. If a can’t get any of those, are their any I would be able to get? Please help and feel free to ask questions.

With all the predators in your tank, none of the smaller wrasse, 5 inches or less will be safe. I also think that the tank is way OVERLOADED with fishes, once the fish you have are 1/2 way full size.
the Lawnmower Bennies will likely ended up as food before long.
Nutrient overload aside, any aggressive large wrasse is fine. Only large wrasse I have experiences with is Harlequin Tusk. HT will fit with the rest of your fishes just fine.

Your bioload is way too heavy for a 240. In a 240 I would probably only do the King / Passer Angel and not any of the others and that’s only if the 240 is 8’.

For Triggers the Queen and Clown can’t be kept forever.

The Lionfish will make most wrasses food. So will the Grouper (not sure how big it gets).

Not sure if Porcupine or Dogface can be kept in a 240 forever but they’re also on the big side.

I’d suggest a Harlequin Tusk too. Get an Aussie one. Maybe some Thalassoma too but not sure if they’ll harass your other predators. You could also consider a Cuban Hogfish or another variety of Hogfish except the mega big ones.
