    The tank which I have purchased has come with 1 Picasso trigger and 1 clown

    I intend to go reef and fish in the tank

    From what I have gathered it is not a good idea to keep the trigger but I would like to have actual feed back...

    Should I keep him in the tank or would it be a good idea to rather swop him out ?

    No trigger is reef safe.
    How big is the trigger.
    When you say clown do you mean normal clown fish or clown trigger

    Ok
    Best bet is if you want to go reef then sell the trigger.
    Nice fish

    I've always wanted one and or clown tang
    Although I have Aquaria artificial coral I have vertebrates so keeping a trigger is hard for me.

    I've had my trigger almost 6yrs now. Only ate 2 gobies a few years back. Other than that no problems. Just need a lot of flow in the tank as he munches the substrate and drops it as he swims.

    @saaid I'm too scared to be trying out my luck as I'm new to salt water aquariums... Don't want to chance messing things up or taking the wrong step ,
    It would be awesome to keep him but as a newbie I feel as if I should not complicate things with a fish that should not be in there
    Thanks for the response
