Triggerfish with another Triggerfish

Will two triggerfish or even three get along in the same tank?
Thank you!

Depends on the trigger. If your going two big triggers you would want a big tank. What triggers are you looking at?

Yup. You can tell if a trigger is very mean by its mouth. If its pointed upward like a blue chin or niger, its more peaceful than most triggers. If its mouth is pointed straight, thats when they become aggressive. Let us know how they do together if you get them.

Just wanted to jump in here:

the kind of trigger you pick makes a big difference on the chances of success.

For example; if you put an Undulated and a Titan in the same tank= World War III

But if you try a Sargassum (Red Tail) and a Blue Jaw= better chance of success.

There are some real well-known nasties that don't play nice for very long. Like Clown Triggers, Titans, Undulated, Pink Tails, Fuscus (Blue Line), Queen Triggers, and IMHO Picasso's. Lots of exceptions to this, I am sure, but in general....
