Remember, white wine pairs better with escargot and won't turn your tank pink!

Says "algae eaters",....but, if they're actually Nass snails they look like they could eat a dead buffalo in a couple of days.

Besides seeinga bunch of snail carcasses scattered amongst the sand bed theres not too much going on here... The giant " cantaloupe " aka " buffalo" snails have all but vanished amongst the rock scape... Its amazing how ferocious these triggerfish can be.... Ive heard reports of " titan triggerfish" attacking divers ( greg.,any tales here ? )... Truly a interesting breed of fish to try and keep !

Like all species, they vary. Never got attacked by one, but they aren't timid . I use to carry food in my BC for hand feeding morays and the triggers still ignored me. You ought to see a full grown Picasso tear a crab up. You can hear it hundreds of feet away... CRACK!

Lol.. Just seeing my rectangular trigger kill anything that hits the water makes one wonder who's the real apex predator ( size for size ) in hawaii ... The tiger shark or the triggerfish...Hint.. Never go snorkeling in a rubber crab wet suit
