Hi all

Does anybody know if a clown trigger and a rectangular trigger are compatible with each other?

OK, Viper, sorry for the slight hijack...

If I wanna start up a nano of some sorts, maybe FOWLR or with some hardy corals just for colour, can I add a trigger? Maybe do a little predator tank; just a trigger and a lion or 2? I know the triggers can get quite big, but will a smaller tank be too small for it?

Would they be a threat to any corals? Also, what would I need to feed them, should it be only live food?

I want a predator tank, but don't want to go big...

I wouldn`t advise adding fish like triggers or lions to a nano, at worse you`ll stunt their growth.

Well if you ever come across a very small clown trigger I would be very happy to take it off your hands.... :)

Wow, this would be a total no no in my books, bordering on cruelty. A small tank is no place for these guys, these fish in the wild grow to be very large fish and are used to large swimming space. If you looking for a predator for a small tank consider a frog fish that doesn't swim in open water.
