Blue jaws are great fish too. I had a male years ago and it is still one of my all time favorites. If I ever get the money to upgrade, I want to get a pair.

Triggerfish are carnivores that spend their days nibbling on a wide variety of echinoderms and crustaceans like crabs, shrimps, sea urchins, worms, and other invertebrates. They are not coral eaters, but they may have a tendency to pick at clams and other animals that may be attached to corals or live rock.

As for tangs.
I have a kole tang in my 70 gal.
I had a small blue hippo tang and I believe the kole tang killed it .
He was weird from the day I bought it
Can triggers be kept in a reef tank ?
Yes I got my cooperbanded butterfly to eat frozen shrimp. When I first introduced the butterfly it did not eat at all. But I keeped using frozen shrimp and now he eats everyday and looking healthy. Yes some butterfly you need to watch in a reef mine nibbled on one of my coral but stopped and didn't mess with anything else in my reef so watch carefully. As for my bluejaw trigger doing great in my reef never had any problems with him picking at my coral at all. Yes one of the better behaved triggers.
