They are awesome fish . At first it was tricky getting him to eat anything but mysis and brine shrimp. Eventually got him eating hikari frozen krill that actually has the whole krill with shell on it. I give mine grocery store clams 3 times a week and occasional emerald crab. I actually have mine with a dwarf lion and they get along great together . The triggers I'm not sure about but I won't risk getting anything that can seriously harm my puffer. They are messy eaters but all puffers are like that. Just be sure to put the food in quick or you risk getting saltwater shot in your eye.

Not the eel. Hard to catch in a set up tank.
