Trigger as a rule aren't very reef safe ,... They tend to be rather aggressive and 99% of them will probably demolish any clean up crew you put into your tank including shrimps, snails and the like, after all thats what they normally eat in the wild,... They may actually get along with everything for awhile and lure you in to thinking that they are a nice community fish then one day they go postal and tear things up,, they do tend to leave most corals alone but they do have a tendency to chew on your rocks and sand bed tho. ,.. have you ever heard the saying " does not play well with others".. well, that is a good rule for most triggers.,,great critters with great personalities ,maybe you can find one that will work for you,...best of luck
