I copied and pasted this from liveaquaria.com, hope it helps
"The Bursa Triggerfish needs a varied diet of meaty foods including; squid, krill, clams, small fish and hard shelled shrimp to help wear down their ever growing teeth."

I don't have any experience with that trigger so hopefully somebody who does will chime in. I'm sure your clowns will be alright, but your shrimp will be at risk.

It will most certainly go after the inverts, can you re home them before the carnage? This isn't the same tank that had ich a few weeks ago is it? Hope not

My friend had a Niger trigger and a orange line(don't know real name) with a clown for years and never bothered it.

I also have a niger trigger. Have had him a few months and has not touched my little crabs. He is in with a yellow tang right now. They had problems the first day, but now I see them
Swim together all the time. From what I have gathered, it really just depends on the fish. I've read that yellow tang is not good with a trigger and was told that at my fish store, but I got him anyways.
