Porcupine Puffer - Can't go with anything else on your list. Saltwater.
Bala Shark - Can't go with neons/lobsters/crab/frog
Red Tail Shark - Can't go with lobsters/crab/frog
Neon Tetra Jumbo - Can't go with most of the list. Would be food.
Siamese Fighting Fish - Again, quite a bit smaller than the rest. Food.
Red Fire Eel - Cant go with lobster/crabs/frog/neons
Red Lobster - Best kept to species tank. Nips can be nasty and will hunt fish. Illegal in the UK
Hammers Cobalt Blue Lobster - Same as above
Black Scorpion Lobster - Same as above. Illegal in the uk.
Mini Crab - Same as above. Also brackish.
Dwarf African Frog - Does best in species only tanks as slow to get food.
Freshwater Clam - Incredibly hard to keep alive in aquaria.
Assassin Snail - This one's a good un.
Pictus Catfish - Would eat the neons.
Motoro Stingray - Very difficult to keep and tbh if you're asking about keeping a porcupine puffer with a bala shark, you're not ready for rays.


Hope this clears a few things up.

pretty much, yeah. the clam could be kept in VERY clean water, with bright lighting, & i've seen them kept. but you can only keep them with fish that won't nip at them. a few of those listed could be kept together, but not many of them could.

Have a look at

African tiger fish- large, predatory and nice big teeth on show
Piraya (vampire tetra)- stunning in shoals, massive fangs
Wolf fish- normally lazy lookin, but will destroy glass if you get too close
Cariba piranha- now hard to get but best looking of the pygos
Arowana- just stunning

None of the above a pieces can be mixed, they can be shoaled within same species with some successes but as always here's no guarantees, with a tank that size you could get lucky though.

A predatory tank that size would look amazing.
