Blue Jaw/Throat Trigger

Hi Guys
Check this guy out, he has to be the most timid trigger I've ever seen. I'll give him a few more days before I name him.

Never known a trigger to be 'reef safe'. Keep him fat-n-happy and lots of shells to crunch on... Or your reef safe trigger will go a hunting.

Isn't this the one that makes grunting noises?

Yeah. "Well fed", "fat-n-happy" seem to be the key words to adhere to. Keeps the "exploratory feeding" down as Larry's link says. He's a beaut! if I ever get my tank back up, he just might be on my list. Although I like to feed every other day and have a habit of leaving town for up to 7 days in the summer. Maybe his exploratory feeding might kick in with my habits.

OK, reef safe with caution, he gets along well with everyone in the tank. I will keep him well fed, and yes he is suppose to be the grunter.
