Are you absolutely sure it was him?? I find it hard to believe a 5-6" trigger terrorized a full grown 15" lion.

In terms of ditching the lion, thats not a possibility. He is the reason i got into salty and why i pushed so hard to rebuil this tank. Hes an automatic

100%. I saw him ripping off his spines then eating it. I tried catching him but by the time I did the lion was already on the verge of death.

Heard of triggers doing this. Told twitch about this and even gave him the article. They say blue jaws, pink tails, and one other usually doesn't.

Well just got the news!! The mag 18 shall be the return pump. Looks like danner had 2 versions of the mag 18 (indoor model and pond model, which is slightly wider). So this one will fit. She wants 100 but imma see if she will take 80

Yep another good one is the bursa trigger. But another aggressive one would be an undulate or queen trigger.

As much as I wanted to have another trigger, I crossed an undulated off my list. I think they are Amazing looking, but they make Humas look like gold fish!!! Lol I wanted to do a tank of just triggers, but they get bigger than I want. And get more aggressive as they age. The only thing I didn't like about a Bursa I once had and returned was the fact that it would constantly bite my live rock! But it was a very personal fish! A lot of character, just not as vibrant as other triggers.
