Pink tail trigger diet

I had a few question on this topic. I know he eats the same stuff as my puffer is going to eat but in my saltwater encyclopedia says that they eat a lot of algae as well which contradicts live aquarias description of just meaty foods and inverts. Also what about feeding them nls pellets? Thanks

Ok I'll get some pellets then. I wasn't sure if they were not supposed to eat pellets like puffers. Have your ever eaten algae before?

My triggers now and ones before them have always eaten some of the nori i would put in for the tangs and angels..Triggers would eat anything you throw in there,,or at least try it
Do they need it,probably not ..If you don't have herbivores to feed i wouldn't worry about it

Thanks . I feed the angel seaweed so it will be available once they are in the same tank. Wasn't sure if i should offer the trigger some in qt or not since I want to keep feeding to a minimum while he is in there.
