IMO The spikes are used for defense and would be used on only the most aggressive and persistent bully. I never seen my FF use the spikes against any other fish except as a display. What size is your tank and whats in there now?

IMO the trigger may harass it at first especially if the FF is a much smaller. Before adding it to your DT feed your fish more than usual and turn off the lights for the night. This will give the new fish time to find a good hiding spot. Good luck and keep clear of the poisonous spikes.
