Well i was wondering about that...had a yellow tang before the big "crash" and he did well until I added a purple tang. Similar body types. They didnt really get along well...finally the purple tang won i guess. Also had a desjardni for awhile, but i've never had a trigger. They seem so disporportionate to me. Never really was attracted to them. And i dont know if they're reef safe?

LOL ...i guess you don't like your shrimp? ?The coral banded i just got molted the first nite after being put in tank... does that mean it's happy? It was eating good today. I like him, he has personality! So no trigger for me

From what I've read, crabs/Shrimp molt after a water parameter change. So it's common that they molt shortly after being brought to their new home. I know my crab did the next day.
