90g / Triggerfish question

Currently setting up 90g (bought on Craigslist) saltwater FOWLR. Just finished removing the calcium off Tank/skimmer/refugium. Currently I am in the process of disinfecting with bleach. Goal: 3 Triggerfish... Possibly the slower growers such as bursa, lunula and huma/Picasso. What do you think?

I wouldn't use bleach use vinegar. And I absolutely love triggers, I have a niger trigger and a huma-huma, they are however aggresive and not reef or invert safe, so if you would like to have either coral or inverts, you unfortunately need to make a decision

Hello Huma-Huma, thanks for the warm welcome! Yes I plan on doing just those three Triggers with live rock only. I'll prob just add invert to my refugium.

It'll look gorgeous, esp with the huma and bursa, you should take a look at the pineapple trigger if you haven't seen it, has some cool coloring as well

I'll look into the pineapple trigger as well. Another reason I picked these
are that their max size is at most 9 or 10". I would've loved a Niger but their max size is much more

Ohh and just a lil piece of advice, they more than likely will nibble at your fingers, and when they actually bite, its not fun my niger got me when I wasn't looking, didn't draw blood though
