I feed a tank I maintain 2 times a week and the fish are fat and healthy. I know we mistakenly overfeed our tanks without knowing. I am also guilty of this at times. I'm just saying that so you are aware of the needs of fish. These fish I speak of are large tangs and rabbitfish.

Well, you are going to have to watch the aggression. I would up the water changes and feed every other day for a while. See how that goes. What kind of triggers?

I know for sure a Niger trigger the other one is green with orange lines and the other is all different colors, I haven't seen any aggression what so ever. I got these fish off my friend and same in his tank no aggression.

google "undulate trigger". If it's that one, I would make sure he stays fed. That's the most aggressive trigger there is. I would be concerned about the puffer if you cut back too much.

Well, that's unusual. They usually tear things to pieces at will. That fish (my favorite fish in the world besides the wartskin angler) is a killing machine. how often do you feed now?
