Niger Trigger

I was thinking about getting a Niger for my tank, but I have read that they can get up to 19 inch. If that is true then there is not much room left for anything eles. THey say they can live in a 75 gal. Seems to me like that would be the only fish in there then. Am I right?

90 gal sw
Wet/Dry w/ LR ruble
2x Maxi-Jet 1200 Power Head
PC Lighting
Remora pro skimmer
90 lbs LR
80 lbs of Carib Sea

Majestic Angel, Pink spotted gobie. Black percular clown, Coral Beauty, Lt. Tang, Mitratus B/F, Multicolor Dwarf Angelfish

I had a niger trigger. he did not do well living with an undulated trigger but then again what does. He was no where near 19inches. I doubt that they get half that size in a tank.

I have read that the Niger gets to 9". I suppose it could depend on the size of the tank however. I love my Niger. He's very docile and gets along with everyone, including my anemone! 8O

You should do okay. This is one of the more docile triggers and a beautiful fish.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

It doesn't matter how big the tank, the fish will grow till it reaches its maximum. I have read that they get 16 in.
