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
I agree 100%. U could only kill this fish if u try lol an mine did that to again its fine now he's beautiful he is with a damsel about an inch and a half ish he is king of the tank but doesn't bully the pamsel but obviously when I feed em fresh shrimp trigger is first then wrasse then clown THEN damsel but damsel are smart they will stay out of his way congrats !!
