Clown trigger must go :(

I hoped I would not see the day when I have to get rid of my favourite fish but I've notice that my yellow tang and lion fish have chunks bitten out of there fins and the only fish in my tank big enough to cause that big of a bite is my clown trigger so he has to go
Has anyone else had to do this?? And I have no idea what I would replace him with! Might just have to set up a tank just for him

Are you sure that they are bite marks? It could be the ammonia level in the water that's eating at their fins.

That's a shame. A species tank with that fish is pretty cool.

Yea he is cool. my fav fish That's why I'm so gutted. Lfs reckon mayb I'm not feeding him enough but I no once triggers get to a Cretan size they can go one way or another and he's way to aggressive for my tank! Taking him back 2mora luckily my lfs will give me what I paid for him in a credit note n I paid £130 for him so I'll have some fun tomorrow
