Clown Trigger w/ Other Fish

Hello all, wondering if you could help me out with some advice from the experts. I dont have any fish yet in my FOWLR tank as it is undergoing its cycle but one of the fish on my wish list is a clown trigger. My LFS told me it would be ok and wouldnt bother any other fish, they just cant be with coral. Is this accurate info?

Here is my fish wishlist:

-2 Ocellaris Clowns
-1 Clown Trigger
-1 Firefish Goby
-1 Hippo Tang

In a 29 G tank, neither the trigger or the tang will be happy. The trigger gets close to 2 feet.....

I agree with scott, the clown trigger needs room even at a small size. They like to dart around alot.

Sounds to me like a sales pitch. The myth of young purchase and small growth in small tanks is just that, a myth.

I wouldn't return to an LFS that would state this. Fish do not just get as big as their enclosure. They stunt and suffer from it usually with lower lifespans.
