The amount and type of filtration would really depend on the size of the tank and what future fish you will be adding later on. Triggers and most other aggressive type fish are typically messy eaters so I would not skimp. LR
is always a good choice for added filtration and as I said needs no special care. The wet/dry would work but I think you would have alot less hassle and less work with a plain sump, protein skimmer and if your up to it a refugium. The combined effort of each piece will greatly cut down on daily maintenace and allow you to enjoy your tank.
OT: This Trigger has been eating like a fiend. As if it's being starved or something. I thought you were only supposed to feed sw fish at most once a day or even every other day. This guy has been eating several times a day. Do Trig's eat more frequently than other SW fish? Will this make him grow faster? Will he explode if I keep feeding him like this?
Most fish will eat until there is nothing left. As long as you feed them they will eat. Triggers are no different than any other SW
fish in general. You can easily feed every other day. I would just suggest varying the fair and try and sneek in some vitamin soaked foods occationally as well as some live inshell mollusks.
