Invert safe trigger?

I have heard and seen videos with people housing triggers with various shrimps, crabs, snails, and hermits. What kind of triggers are least likely to pick on a CUC?

I've been researching this same thing for awhile. Blue throat/blue jaw triggers, pink tails, and sargassum seem to be the least likely from what I've seen.

I have had a few Blue Throats that have been fine with all of the above. I keep one now in a reef setting that doesn't bother anything.

I had a Pink Tail Trig, he mowed my inverts down.

Don't triggers eat coral?

Yes but the OP is asking if they can keep a trigger with their clean up crew.

I love my clown trigger but fear that the cost of replenishing my CUC will be crazy makes me think about getting a different trigger

I have never witnessed a trigger eating coral. I believe they are listed as not reef safe because they can eat inverts like crabs, shrimp, snails...

I've had my Niger trigger for over a year now in my reef with great success. Imo, you take a chance. I do keep him well fed though.

Beautiful setup. I have my LFS looking for a male & female blue throat trigger pair. Pretty psyched to get them in. Click image for larger version
