Blue trigger or Red-tooth trigger is actually refered to as the Niger trigger. People say that this trigger will pick at the fins of lionfish or fins of a shark but this has not happened yet to me. The Niger trigger is one of the most peaceful triggers in the hobby. They are usually sold very small and can get to be 18 inches. However they do grow very very slow and can easily be kept in a 75gal for quite a long time. These fish are NOT picky eaters and will eat almost about anything.

one time i had a clown trigger. he had been in my tank for 7 months and i had bought a mandari. when i put it in he didnt go for him and i was very shocked. each time i turned on the light each morning i got up, i always saw the trigger and mandarin both touching each other under the rock. the trigger was tilted over the mandarin and they both swam together, so they must of become friends. my 1 foot panther didnt go for him and so he looked like he was well fed by me. i am andrew pole in southampton

I have a friend that works at Petco, and upon a visit yesterday he asked me if I wanted a free fish. That fish is a 2" Undalated Triggerfish. He told me it would help to finish cycling my new tank which still has three weeks to go. He also informed me that it would more than likely KILL my three remaining Damselfish. I asked why is he free and got the back story on how he killed another guys fish. Well I'm writing this to inform all that I took my friend up on the free fish offer, brought him home put him in my tank and have spent the last two days watching my Blue Damselfish, Yellow-Belly Damselfish, and Mystery Damselfish who was always being chased by the other two Damsels put this Trigger in his place from the get go. I have seen no signs of aggressiveness toward my Damselfish which ranging in size from the 2" Blue, and yellow-Belly to a 1/2" Mystery Damselfish. The Damsels let it be known who the bosses are especially the Blue Damsel. So far so good.. And I was given a real horror story before I decided ok I'll give the little guy a chance.

I just Added An Undulated to my tank of 5 triggers which are 1 Whitetail,1 Pinktail,1Huma Huma,1 Bluejaw, 1 Clown, and everything is cool. He hides alot I think he is just getting adjusted to the new tank, and his new tankmates. Having this many in one tank is a risk, and there is just one thing to remember and that is to make sure you feed them a few times a day so they will not have a reason to fight each other. But note they will fight every once and a while and it is ok unless you start to notice them get real beat up looking, and usually it will just be one that is beat up. But besides all that they are great active, and very colorful fish.

I left this comment under Undulate Trigger also.

Totally disagree with the comment about Triggers being poor swimmers! I have always Known in my experience and education that Triggers are in fact amazing swimmers if not the best of any fish in the sea. They can swim in any direction at any time and are definitely among the quickest around! That is the first time I have ever heard anyone call a Trigger a bad swimmer!

No Offensive but...
I have to say that I Totally disagree with the comments under the Clown Trigger Bio. It says that Triggers in general are bad swimmers! As Marine Biologist, we have always understood and acknowledged the Trigger Fish as one of the best, if not the best Swimmers of all the Fish, Fresh and Saltwater. They can swim in any direction at any moment and are definitely among the quickest around! I wonder who came up with that comment and where they got their info!
