I have heard from LFS people that they are just about the meanest fish available to the hobbiest.

Ah! Ok I found out that it’s hard to put Inverts when you have this kind of fish but I add 1 Clown Trigger and I notice that 2 Undulate Trigger is scared on a clown trigger. I add 1 Emperor Angelfish, 2 Black Banded Cat Shark, 3 Copperband Butterfly, 2 Pearlscale Butterfly, and 3 Coral Beauty Angel. It seems that the undulate trigger can be mix on this kind of fish because undulate trigger did not attack this fish that I add. Right now I'm happy because my fish is getting well but the only problem that I have is I cannot add Inverts or corals because this fish eats inverts & corals.

What kind of setup do you have??
This fish? Most of your fish will eat some type of corals.
FYI the Cppperbanded and Pearlscale have a low survival rate in tanks.. Same as the Shark from what I have read..
The clown trigger is another mean, nasty fish when it gets larger..
how about a pic..

Alright, I did a little research and found you made reference to your 50gal tank. If this is the case you have SEVERELY, DRAMATICALLY and INCREDIBLY overstocked your tank. Most of the fish you listed require a much larger tank by themselves, not to mention all together. For that fish list a several hundred gallon system is needed. I have a feeling your tank is heading for disaster...sorry

:P Thanks for the advice dude well actually I have 2 50gal aquarium but before I put the other fish on the other tank I testing some compatibility about the fishes I have, Well I have a 1 6inch & 1 4inch Undulate Trigger, 1 7inch clown trigger, 1 7inch Emperor Angel, 2 12inch Black Banded Cat Shark and etc… I’m testing the fatalities of this fish when I put this on a 50gal tank if this fish survive within 2 weeks in a 50gal tank that’s the time that I will separate the other fish.
