I agree, we are probably the hardest animal to "profile"

That's a great looking fish

I sometimes think I'm going to have to setup a FOWLR to have a trigger, they are such awesome looking fish. Not to mention that If I said I was going to do it to have a trigger my wife would probably let me. She wants one.

GREAT Looking fish!!!

This one is in my reef. I personally don't think you need a FOWLR to have one. Crosshatch, blue throats and sargassums are ok in a reef imo.

Any problems with it messing with your mobile inverts at this point?

None at all. Cleaner shrimp is all over the tank and all snails and conches are still alive.

And here is a better pic. I took this one with the flash so you dont get the blue overtone from the lights. Shows its colors much better.

Most are, however, Crosshatch, Blue Throats, Sargassums and some others are from the genus Xanthicthys which live in deeper water and feed on zooplankton. They are also less aggressive. Because they are from deeper water and feed on zooplankton they aren't as familiar with reef inverts and aren't as likely to see them as a food item. These triggers can be kept in a reef as long as they are monitored because there is always a few bad apples. After all they are still triggers. And triggers will be triggers. But overall they are pretty reef safe.

Well we had our first Trigger related fatality yesterday afternoon. Wasn't really his fault, i don't beleive he intended to do it but he did none the less. I was feeding him juvenile silversides, which he loves. At this time the nassarius snails came out of the sand and started crawling around and up the glass. A piece of food floated by one of the snails and as he ate the piece of food he turned and saw the feeler thing that nassarius snails have and wack took a chunk out of the snail which included the whole feeler, which looks very much like the pieces of silverside that i was feeding. I dont blame him for doing it meliciously, but by accident as a feeding responce. Otherwise he hasn't touched anything in the tank.

I got bit by a trigger on a SCUBA trip. You would be surprised how much of a punch they pack.
