Blue Throat Trigger

Anyone had any experience with a Blue Throat. I read they are less agressive and am thinking about it down the road with a couple of clowns and chromis, and maybe another small or medium fish. Would that work in a pretty peaceful aquarium? Any good or bad things to say about this fish???

Woo Hoo, PAYDAY! Time to pay the LFS rent (even before I pay mine )

Blue thoats are a good choice for a less agrressive trigger. You can also look into Crosshatch, Pinktail, Niger and Sargassum. They are much the same tempermant.

Small fish (>2") will always be a concern with any trigger so watch the size of the fish you get. To be safe, introducing the trigger last would be best. It will become used to you feeding it and after awhile anything that comes from you will be considered "dinner"

I have also found that feeding via "feeding stick" is best with these guys as they are very messy eater. It will cut down on the excess wasted foods and help keep water parameters in good shape.
