I ran into the issue of what to put into mine trigger wise. I checked into a Male Blue Jaw trigger and they have some nice markings (grey/blue/yellow) plus they aren't as aggressive as clown triggers and arentl all black/green like nigers, but nigers are nice fish to have as well. Unfortunately the one i did get ended up getting ich and infecting the whole tank which i am still recovering from. He died with a secondary infection but nobody had ich until he came into the picture. Not that i think they are more prone, but just make sure you QT the fish well before placing into the main tank. The thin skin on triggers can make them easy ich targets from what i have heard.

I have a Niger Trigger in my 90G and he is really awesome. He gets along with everyone in the tank. This type of trigger is well suited for a tank your size as well. A clown gets pretty big, and I have always wanted one but I don't have the right size tank for him though. As everyone said, QT him before you put him in the main tank. In fact, I would probably add him last if you can. Mine is not very aggressive, but each one has different personalities. That is a great skimmer by the way.
