Mine I got when it was a baby I keep him well fed with shrimp ,scallops,fish ,squid so he's never Hungary so he don't mess with the coral banded shrimp or fish.. I'm willing to bet though if I were to skip a few meals I'd have some issues..

I hid a piece of 3" PVC in my rock work and at first I hated it because it was white but he loves it and now the algae has camouflaged it now.

Just keep it from drawing all the attention to the PVC home instead of the beauty of your tank. I'm trying to find some overflow covers for my tank. I've seen a bunch that look like rock but none quite large enough for my overflows.

Eel and trigger gets fed every day to keep him from eating any of my fish. I feed them both silversides, shrimp, krill and they also eat whatever im feeding the rest of my tank.

I got him back in the beginning of August but QT him at the store so I kept him used to hands in the tank and one day he came out of nowhere and I thought he was going to bite me but he just wrapped my hand up and kept sliding through my fingers. Now he's in my tank at home and still does the same. And I don't put my hands in until after I have fed them because the trigger still worries me. (Bad experience with a clown trigger)

I had one for 8 years until he busted out of the tank, and I mean busted out. He blew the lid of the tank off. He was 2' and incredibly strong. He could eat anything that fit in his mouth. He lived with a 1' lion fish and that was all.

They will get into incredibly small spaces when little. That's why the caution on the power heads.
