You should keep us updated on how it does in the tank. I don't have much experience with triggers in my own tanks so it would be interesting to hear how is does. They are really great looking fish. Pictures when you get it too.

You're going to love the triggers.., just looking at'em gotta make you laugh,....they eat from your hand and they seem more like the personality of having a dog rather than a fish .... Enjoy your terrier, Dary

I put a baby niger trigger and blue jaw in my 150 reef.

All were getting along great. The triggers are definately characters. Our blue jaw spits at us when he wants food.

That being said, our niger was returned to the store. One day I was watching as he chased and nipped at our two percula clowns. Their fins were all tore up, and he was really going after them.

We aren't sure what happened, but he took a liking to them. He was immedately caught and returned to the store for in house credit.

The blue jaw remains and is a model citizen.

If you deciede to go that route, keep a close eye on them. They may change over night. Our niger was in the tank for almost 8 months before he got aggressive for no reason.

Yeahh...they spit at you when really hungry and also bite if you get your finger too close to the food. I have always wanted a clown trigger but wont' risk my corals and the other fishes.

the clown or undulate would be the two triggers i would highly suggest against for a peaceful community tank/reef. these are the most aggressive of the triggers, and as they get bigger, they get worse.

Ok so I will try the niger trigger I think. I will keep a close eye on him, if he does start any beef with my fish I will be selling him real quick lol

My tank is peaceful and would like to keep it that way.

Thanks for everyones input, I will keep you updated as soon as I get him.

Why don't you try the Sargassum Trigger the colors are very nice and are very peaceful, shy, and will not bite at the corals or other fishes.

Ok so update

I havent been on a while, been busy buying a new condo and with work.

I have decided to skip the trigger fish. What I have done instead is a guy near my house took down his 120g so I bought most of his fish and corals.

This is what I bought:

6 inch regal tang, 4 bangai cardinals, six line wrasse, huge frog spawn, a very nice anemone, couple bird's nests, and a few other corals.

I will post pics up shortly. My tank has a lot of fish and corals now, I am running out of room. When I move April 1st I will reposition all of my LR and make the tank more presentable so to speak.

Now that I have about 20 corals and roughly 15 fish.

yellow tang, regal tang, 4 bangai's, 4 clowns, royal gramma, solar wrasse, six line wrasse, anthia
