Trigger

Bought a Niger trigger yesterday. As soon as I put him in the tank he shoved his head between a rock and the back glass. Today he is out swimming but I have noticed a white line or scratch on his eye. But he has been fighting a little with a damsel. Also he is eating a bunch

When i got my niger trigger he did the SAME THING. i thought something was wrong with him or maybe i didnt acclimate him enough. But come to find out. triggers LOVE to wedge themseleves between the rocks and just sit there. thats actually how they came about getting there name. As for the scratches. triggers are very sturdy fish they move so quickly and harshley that they hurt themselve quite often. Mine comes up all the time with white scratches on his face around his eyes and his sides. thats normal. i wouldnt worry too much about him fighting with the damsel. if the trigger wanted to kill the damsel he would have by now lol. their probebly just trying to establish whos in charge
