Picaso Trigger and Scooter Blenny

So I already have a scooter blenny in my tank and have been wanting a picaso trigger. But I've ready that they don't get along?

Has anyone had any experience with the two of them? I just didnt see where the agression would come from.

The aggression comes from the Picasso, they are evil!

Are the other triggers that look similar just as aggressive? I wouldn't mind a black trigger but it suggest having 180 gl tank and mine is 90gl.

I concur
Tangs get a lot of attention when it comes to tank size (rightfully so),,but triggers often do not

Im not gonna disagree that the Picasso is aggressive but mine never paid any mind to the scooter blenny in my tank. Unfortunately im gonna have to agree with fw in that you should pass on triggers due to your tank size. Triggers commonly reach 10+ inches in length and are pretty active swimmers. I have a Picasso and a niger (both 5-6 inches long) and they explore every inch of the 125. This is just my opinion though
