Triggers in Reef Tank?

Hi there,
I read that Niger, Bluechin, Crosshatch, and Pinktail triggers are peaceful and can be kept in a reef tank. Is this depending on their personalities or are they always thant peaceful? Please tell me some of your experiences with them in a reef tank. Thanks a lot, Wolf

While these are considered more of the docile triggers, it is always a gamble in a reef tank. It really depends on the fish's own personality. IMO, it is not worth the risk, one destructive fish can wipe out many coral colonies in a day. Besides, if you find them eating corals, they are very hard to catch in a reef tank without tearing the entire reef apart.
