    Hello! The measurements of a 72 bow would be tight for a russels, I wouldn't do it. It would be awesome for some of the medium fish like the mombassae, radiata, sphex, antennata. You could have more than one of the lions and then you could also have those leaf fish. An adult Russels could eat the leaf fish.

    The cockatoo waspfish (Ablabys taenianotus) has a more powerful sting than the lions and scorps, but it won't almost kill ya or anything. Our Cockatoo sits on our hands and is one of my all time favorite fish. I don't know if I've ever seen him startle. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone. Leaf fish can be difficult to train to frozen, which can make feeding time a pain. Just keep that in mind.

    Put the Cockatoo at the top of the list. Everyone who has them, loves them.
