Reef safe clown trigger

Wanted to share my very unique clown trigger. When he was in the LFS he got spooked and ran him self very hard into the glass, breaking is top jaw, resulting in losing his top teeth. I adopted the poor guy and he's doing great!! Had to share Click image for larger version

your title says "reef safe clown trigger" I hate to break it to you but they are far from reef safe , they"ll eat any and all inverts along with any fish he can fit in his mouth , Triggers will snack on corals both hard and soft also plow them over every chance they get , they are beautiful fish but not reef safe sorry to be the barer of bad news ,

try feeding him clams on the half shell , my trigger comes and takes them out of my hand great personality
