Trigger with Attitude !!!

I bought a Niger Triggerfish a couple of days ago.Hes a juvenile.People told me they were oh so gentle .He kicked my Yellow Tang who ran the tank to the front.Now my Tang is actually hanging out with my Foxface who he use to beat on alot.Is my Niger going to become more violent later on?? Hes just a little guy right now.

Triggers can go from fine to killing machines in an instant. Blue Jaws are supposed to be the most mellow. I've heard mixed reviews on Nigers and even pink tails that are supposed to be somewhat okay. It might just be staking out it's territory and things will calm down, but I would keep an eye on them.

my blue jaw is giving my foxface stick too, can't believe it as it's a venomous fish but I'm hoping it's just establishing rank territory type thing too
