Hello!
I'm rather stumped on which trigger to get for my 180. I know there are a lot of variables when it comes to this, but I'd like some pictures/stories of the triggers you currently keep! :crazy1:

Thanks!

All triggers pick at lions9dont no if you have one but it is your pic). If it is just for the trigger get a blueline or clown. If not you should get a humu humu nuku nuku apuaa(rectangle trigger) or brusa or pinktail or niger or picaso. Dont keep any:( just recomending.

I only have 1 fuzzy dwarf, and he's in my 75 gallon refugium. I am aware that triggers bite the spines of lions, but my dwarf won't go into my main tank. My avatar is just a picture I found on the internet.

Nope. I guess I shoulda said this in the op, but I currently have a :
Princess Parrotfish
Dogface Puffer
and Vlaminigi Tang (who's going to be moved when he gets big--currently 7 inches.).
I guess they can be peaceful/semi-aggressive fish, so nothing TOO aggressive. I was thinking a Melicthys (sp?), Rhinecanthus, or Xanthichthys species. But I'm down for whatever, as long as it isn't queen/clown/undaleted mean. Was planning on putting a pomacanthus angel in there and a tuskfish when the tang goes to the public aquarium.
I've also had a bluethroat and niger trigger in the past, so I'm familiar with triggerfish in general. Just wanted pics/stories to steer my direction.

LOL, I know. One step ahead of ya. They're gorgeous as juvies and adults, but yeah, they're too mean.

I like my Blue Throat. I also think a Sargassum Trig would work nice (if you can ever find one! I haven't ever seen one FS...).

I really enjoy my Hawaiian/black durgeon

They are dark in color but still very cool looking & have zero attitude. They also can get quite large, well over a foot but still have zero attitude

I've a80g with a blue throat (4-4.5") & cross hatch (6.5-7") along with mostly angels. I would say the cross hatch will need to go into a bigger tank very soon and when that happens I will get a female blue throat to pair. I originally purchached the blue throat pair but the female turned male and ended up separating them as they started to fight.

here's a video when light is on at night and the 2nd one during morning feeding so flakes and pellets.

flameangel- nice selection of fish. Did you purchase the mag. foxface as a pair or did you pair them yourself?
