That sucks. It's just that the lion is like 13"-15" and the trigger is 5"

Yeah. If he's that bad now- there's no hope for when he's bigger. He's gotta go! In the words of Trump- "you're fired!"

I've read that it is pretty common for the more aggressive triggers to chew of a lion's dorsal spines and then kill it. Had to take my Niger back today. It was the first fish I got after the cycle. Was jut getting really nasty. LFS is trying to get me a Blue Throat.

Yeah, and his body started to loose color. But all this happened after the Humu trigger first attacked him months ago. I hate that dang trigger so much but no LFS has space for him since he's so big.

Advertise him on Craigslist! Would probably make more than a trade in at a LFS anyways. Or try some business that have large tanks.

Not yet but since the no one looks sick I don't think it's needed. Only thing now is to get the lion fish to eat and the trigger out of the tank. Next order LEDs so there is less algae. Then maybe in a couple weeks I'll order new fish like a puffer.
