A male blue throut trigger would be nice... They are a nice fish and mellow not nasty like other triggers can be.

You can add a trigger, here are the mellow ones, there cool fish to have.

Pinktail 10-12 inches- medium aggressive - mines very docile
Niger 16-18 inches - medium aggressive
Bluethroat - 10-12 inches - docile - males have the blue throat, females don't
Crosshatch - 10-12 inches - docile - expensive
Sargassum - size I dont remember - docile - not as hardy as the others

You can try one of my all time favorites...the clown trigger. Absolutly stunning colors and patterns. Awesome.

Clown Triggers are a beautiful fish BUT many have issues like not wanting tank mates ........lol
If you were to add a clown it would be with Great Caution & at your own risk .....
Caution such as many of your fish may not survive this trigger & you definaltly put them at risk!

If you add the trigger last (i.e. after your current inhabitants) it may tend to be less aggressive, than vice versa.

Niger- Proven Veggie eaters and keep to themselves for the most part. Beautiful under blue lighting.

I'd intro a clown but buy him smaller then your other tank mates.. then the pecking order can be established.. once he gets bigger then the tankmates he might be like clifford the big red dog.. VERY FRIENDLY!!!
