I have kept this Triggerfish (2 in a tank). They are fine in a single, they just need their separate hiding places. I have had them in a Fish-Only tank now for a year. I have decorated the tank with coral skeletons. I have given them many hiding places and they remain fine. This is a KOOL trigger. However to keep 2 in a tank it is recommended to buy young and introduce at the same time.

    Mine is pretty mean! He picks on all the fish in the tank. Fish are as follows: yellow tang, starry trigger, clown trigger, hawk fish, panther grouper, emperor angel adult. I have been in this fish keeping for 10+ years and also have a reef tank. I have 2 tanks, running 125 gallon fish only tank, and a 55 gallon reef tank. These triggers seem to be pretty mean to me.
