triggers and clown fish

Can anyone tell me if there are any safe triggers that I can place in my tank with clown fish?

I have 3 Nigers and 1 Pink Tail and they leave my 2 clowns alone. Of corse the clowns head for their Anemone when the triggers come close.

I dont think so. I looked at all the ones on Liveaquaria and they all say they eat small fish. So I think you would be taking a chance.

ezy33... you have triggers in your tank with anemone? I thought triggers ate that.

to add my 2 cents... my burma trigger doesnt bother my maroon clown.

I do find the maroons are able to take care of themselves. I had one in with 5 damsels, including a blue devil, and they never messed with him.....

I have done a lot of research on triggers because i really want to put one in my tank when everything is ready. This includes book and online research and asking lots of questions at my LFS, employees of which are very knowledgable.(all have to pass the M-1 certification test before handling costumers)
From my research i have decided that Riggens Trigger, Pink Tail Trigger, Blue Throat Trigger, and Crosshatch trigger can all be kept with not only smaller fish, but in a reef tank with limited to no damage.
