    I always loved clown triggers..just heard hectic stories of owners coming home one day to find a massacre in the tank after adult clown trigger went mad and started killing random fish

    blue throat triggers are awesome

    yep, no problems but remember each to it's own and like I said, I kept my guys well fed. piece of mussel, brine shrimp, flakes & nori 2-3 times day.

    That would look awesome!!
