Your goby might end up being lunch.

Everything might become lunch lol but it depends on the fish itself. My Picasso is about 3 in and hasn't bothered a single thing, not even shrimp or crabs.

Triggers in general really just shouldn't be trusted lol. But Picasso are "less aggressive" than most triggers. Clown and undulated are definitely the meanest I would say.

IMHO no trigger should be in anything less than 125 6 footer..
My Picasso AKA Humu is a real PITA(had for a little over 3 years and has killed numerous fish) ,,i'm actually getting rid of him as soon as i upgrade(which will be tomorrow)

I think the phrase" community tank with a picasso trigger " is kind of an oxymoron ,,not making fun of you ,,just letting you know my experience with one(and he's in an aggressive set-up)

For the record ,,my humu is much meaner than my clown trigger and every fish is different ,,,took my humu 2+ years to snap and act like he is now

Im with ftm on this one, although I dearly love my Picasso trigger, its a complete guessing game with him in terms of new fish. Other than that mine is ok and doesn't get too wild, but he will go after anything he can bully. In terms of your tank, it depends alot on when you are adding these fish and the size. I have an engineer goby that lives peacefully with my Picasso...the goby is about 10" long though...and my trigger is 5-6" ... but as ftm said, be ready to have a handful

It really does depend on the fish as huma and ftm said. Mine was a complete pshyco path and killed anything that wAs put in with him!

So do it at ur own risk and have a back up plan ready if something goes wrong!
