Circle of Life at the LFS

I just got back from the LFS, and I saw a brutal display of what a triggerfish can do.

The Trigger was a Niger, and a juvenile at that, but I was watching him and his tankmate, a clown wrasse. The wrasse caught my eye because it didnt look so good, kinda listless and dull. Suddenly the Niger exploded into the wrasse and over a period of 15 minutes or so just ripped him to shreds. I know it sounds morbid, but I couldnt help but marvel over how effective the Niger was in immobilizing his prey without ever endangering himself. Is this typical of all triggers or was the weakened fish too enticing for the trigger to pass up? THe Niger was beautiful, and Ive read they are the most passive triggers, but I dont think I will ever have one if they cant play nice with others.
