My clown trigger was 1" when I got him and in two years he reached 8-9" and turned aggressive. I rehomed him this week to a local guy's predator tank.

The guy that took him is local so I can still see him and watch him thrive. He has a 400 gallon acrylic ten foot long tank. The trigger still seems like he's confused on how far he can go since I had him in a 125 6ft then my 180 6ft until I sold him

Yes he has several large angels, he has probably a dozen yellow tangs, i counted 4 hippo tangs, a clown tang, a ton of other assorted fish. Many fish that I think the trigger might find to be lunch but he didn't seem to worried lol

I will next time I go to his house. I just met him a few weeks ago when he was debating on buying my clown trigger. Don't want to over stay my welcome too much but he did say I could come view the clown since I have it to him so cheap. His tank is absolutely amazing. So much going on in there you can't focus on any one thing In there.
