I have a clown triggerfish, a picasso triggerfish, and a panther grouper in a 10 gallon tank and they are doing fine so far! They never fight and when they do it seems they are just playing. They are great fish!

I hope you're joking... that's just wrong and incredibly cruel. None of those fish belong in a 10g tank! By now, I'm guessing all three would have either died from ammonia poisoning or killed each other... do a little research before buying fish; what you're doing is called animal cruelty.
These fish should never be placed in a 10 gallon tank. This tank is way too small. They definitely would fight.
Really???? In a 10 gallon??
For those fish you need at least a 100 gallon tank. That's wrong.

You need to do a lot more research into what you are buying and what its needs are.
Saying you have had one of these for ages (7 months) is talking rubbish.... they can live anything up to 25yrs. get to 20" and become more and more aggressive as they get older. As they mature the become very territorial, and will fight and kill any other fish in the tank. They need at least a 200 gal Tank. And they need mental stimulus.
Learn before you buy. As you are just wasting your money and killing a pet.
I like the clown triggerfish.
I seriously hope this is a joke,,,,,,SERIOUSLY??!!!?!?
Yah, I have to do a report at scool and I found this website it's the best I've found yet!

Same here it's so good.
some fish lover!
I have a clown triggerfish with a picasso triggerfish and a yellow tang and even though they fight they make great aquarium pets!
I had one then my undulate ate his eyes out and tore him up!
I have had a huma huma and two clowns, they're great! The clown I have currently is the smallest in the tank yet continues to slightly bully his larger dogface puffer cousin. He is in constant display mode, patrolling the tank like a beat cop.

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

Hi andrew pole in southampton! It looks like you love your hobby of marine fish. how are you doing at the moment? What fish do you have?
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!
great looking fish, i own a 5.5 inch specimen. do not attempt to keep with peacful or small fish as its very aggressive.
i tryed to keep mine with a 5 inch naso tang when he was small and it chased and bit the tang repeatedly so had to be moved into another aquarium. now i keep the trigger in a 6x2x2 tank with a 7 inch red coris and a large emperor angel.
Ive got a 12 incher. Ive had my clown trigger for 6 months. hes like one of the family. he is in a 6ft by 2ft by 2ft tank. when i refuse to feed him he makes a funny squeaking noise.
My clowntrigger has a different pattern of the white spots - instead of being round, mine has irregular shapes and many more white spots than the ones I usually see. Can somebody tell me if mine is unusal?
