I would think a that a Humu Picasso Triggerfish , Bursa Trigger, or a Niger Trigger would be ok for a while in a 50. Most places I have seen recommend a minimum of a 75 gallon tank for triggers. Putting triggers with clowns could lead to a problem. I looked at a few compatability charts and they say they can be put together with caution.

I have a niger trigger in a 55, will be adding a humahuma most likely. They dont grow really fast and by the time I want another tank, the triggers will be a good reason to get one

Right now, 4 sw and 2 fw are plenty.

I have both a Niger and Picasso in 2 seperate tanks, both are housed with a clown or two. So far no problem. I think the triggers will nip at the zoos though.

I would go with a bluejaw triggerfish. Small in max size, not aggressive at all. and beautiful coloration.
