Hi, I was thinking about my stocking plans and I would love to have a Niger trigger and a pair of blue throat triggers as my main fish but I have heard mixed reviews about triggers sharing a tank. My tank is 6ft x 2.5 x 2.5.

Anybody got any experience on this?

Thanks

Terry.

I've no experience mixing triggers , but I do own a blue throat male , generally he is quite placid but certainly rules the tank when he chooses to , mainly when he's had enough of the tangs bickering  and puts them all back in place .

If you do it, I'd add them together.  That way, none of them have an established territory to defend.  Be prepared to have to separate them though.  Same with tangs of the same shape (and sometimes other shapes too - they can be a nightmare).
