I want a Trigger but.....

I read that Triggers are not reef safe or small fish safe. Sure would like one of those boys.

Anybody have a successful experience with a Trigger in a coral filled, reef tank with blennies and such?

They aren't other fish safe or invert safe.

Triggers can be very mean. Definitely not reef-safe or small fish either. I saw a Bursa Trigger disembowel a Hogfish that was bigger than the trigger.

Niger Triggers are about the safest of them. Not terribly aggressive and some have even successfully kept them in a reeftank.

Too bad. I'm leaning toward the Clown or Picasso. Can't have everything!
