Cat shark and Niger trigger together?

I am looking at getting a cat shark for my fowlr tank. I have a small Niger trigger that's about 4" long and have heard that triggers will nip at sharks but heard the fish least Likely to so it are nigers. What does everyone think? My rock work is rather open because I like to keep minimal rock in the tank for increased swimming room. The shark will be 7-10"

Fish in the tank
Sailfin tang
Marine Betta
Niger trigger
Snowflake eel
Koran angel
Flame angel
Dragon wrasse

Shouldn't be a problem in a tank that big.

I have had friends who have had them. Bamboo sharks and kept them with massive triggers, lions, eels.

I currently house three sharks and a ray with a blue jaw trigger. That species family (Xanthichthys auromarginatus) are the most docile. Crosshatch blue jaw and I think one other. Nigers are not bad but with any trigger u are rolling the dice so the Niger is probably your next best choice.
