I've been reading around retail sites and have been getting mixed reviews on which trigger is the nearest to "reef safe." I know that no matter what, they'll eventually eat your CUC.
So, we are basically looking for a few criteria here:
- Will eat the least of my CUC (only snails/hermits vs shrimp and larger crabs - if this exists)
- Least aggressive
- Will not nip at corals
I've heard Crosshatch, Blue Jaw/Throat, and Nigers specifically as being the "best." I'd like an above-all, best option if this is possible. Crosshatch is definitely out of my price range, so if that one is the best, give me a number two. I love the way triggers swim, but I want to do reefs, so I want to see what I have to work with if I want to stay with a reef. I'll eventually do an aggressive FOWLR
tank with a Humu Humu/Picasso Trigger, but that is much further down the road.
P.S.: My current tank size does not matter here, this is for future reference.
