How about a Blue Caribbean Tang? I had one years ago and really liked it.

All the tangs eat algae. But most of them work the rocks I have observed. The Kole concentrates on the glass. He leaves little kiss marks everywhere when there is a bit of algae present.

I think mine focused mostly on the rocks, but I seem to recall that it would get the glass at times too.

Why not a Foxface? Your trigger probably wouldn't mess with the foxfaces dorsal spines.

I like foxface, but then I've never been stung by mine.

I don't believe fish view them as a threat. i have never seen a tang back down from one. As a matter of fact, the powder blue in the tank I maintain for a not so local health club bullies the foxface regularly.

From LA " The One Spot Foxface may be housed with more aggressive fish since predators and aggressors will tend to leave it alone because of its venomous dorsal spines."
