New Addition - Clown Trigger

Ok, this sealed it. My friend just purchased a Clown Trigger for me. Right now it is only 2" long. Its in my 75g with a Dog Face Puffer, Dragon Goby and 2 Perc Clowns. Sooo, now I will have to take the plunge a little earlier than expected for the 125g. It was in the works anyway for the dogface too. Any advice on keeping these fish? I have printed off so much info from internet, but I would like to hear from a Trigger owner.
THANK YOU!

I think your puffer and trigger might have problems. Well, the trigger might give the others problems too, plus any inverts (I think the puffer will get them eventually if the trigger doesn't)....IMO.....

I have had the puffer for a while. The two seem to be getting along fine. the goby and percs are about the same size as the trigger. I do have a large hermit in there also, but no one bothers him, as i imagine his pincher could cause quite a bit of pain. But i am watching it closely.

Let`s talk about that dragon goby. I still have one that I later found out was a bullet goby. The LFS called it a dragon goby also. Does your`s look like this?

When I went into the LFS and asked for a Bullet Goby, that is what they told me - or insisted that it was a "dragon goby". mine looks like the Bullet in those pics. Absolutely AWESOME at keeping the sand clean.

Made the plunge for a 150gal tank with overflows. Just ordered it today and it will be here end of next week. Frustrates me too. I just bought the 75g 4 months ago. Oh well, a big reef tank it will be

Props on going with the larger tank! I think all involved will be much happier.

You will love the upgrade. Good move. You can make a Seahorse tank with the 75 gallon tank. LOL
