My newest addition

spyrule

Juvenile Clown Trigger fish.

This is in my 75Gallon, and he's only 2" long (at most).

 

By the time he grows large enough, I hope to have a 100+ Gallon tank, or larger if I get my house by then. :)

I only got him yesterday from the LFS, from a tank that had 30+ small blue hippo tangs, and he was getting along with them quite well. He was eating 1/2 hour after I put him in the tank. He leaves my clown alone, and my yellow tang and him seem to just be indifferent to each other. Besides that, he is already clearing up some of the spined copepods that he can chew easily (yeah, 'cause I hate the things!).

Interesting Spyrule. Let us know how he fares in a reef tank. They usually get boisterous after a couple years old and start tearing corals up, unless well fed. I love to see triggers in reef tanks, especially colorful ones. Good luck!

Yeah, I well assumed that it will not go too well with my corals once it starts to get bigger, but frankly, I don't have anything of high value.

 

I've got a huge sarcophyton, a crap-ton of fragspawn and waaaaaaay too much

Green Star Polip. So if he decides to clear some of it up, thats totally

fine by me.

 

Besides I dont plan on keeping him in this tank for more then 1-2 years at

most, depending on how fast he gets big !

 

Thanks for the heads up though.

well, as an update, it's been 9 months and he's only grown about 1/2" at the most. He's still quite docile, except for eating all my cleaning crew. Somehow a peppermint shrimp has survived the entire time.

But he is healthy, and I will probably be selling him soonish.
