That's great people do over estimate I think a bit although saying a trigger fish is quite territorial and can be destructive just watch him for a couple days

I would advice against getting the trigger for your tank. They need to be in a larger tank as they can get to a foot long. He wouldn't be able to turn around not to mention other issues that would arise. I don't believe any trigger would work in that tank size.

Live aquaria has pretty good info…
