    I know inverts are at risk, I think like angels it depends on the individual.

    mmmm... No not if you want any coral left and like magman said you will not have any inverts either. They are best kept in a fish only system.

    dude with these fish you can never say. ive had a 8cm picasso for 2 years with a whole reef, even shrimps, he never ever touched anything and then one day he destroyed a whole hammer and brain coral.

    as a rule most triggers of the Rhinecanthus family are very aggressive and non reef safe

    Ruan also look at Niger triggers. Just remember triggers eat a LOT (lots of poo) and can grow quite large. They also tend to be quite boisterous guys.....make sure your aquascaping can handle it :p
