Saw a gorgeous little one of these at my LFS today.

Am gutted that I can't have one.  :(

You thought about a bluethroat trigger instead?  They're reefsafe.

They're not really suitable for big tanks though. Really should be kept in a nano.... #Jokes.

I have one, but it never made the DT due to whitespot.  It's in the QT with the rest now.

Most are fine, but some people report them going after the odd hermit, or snail, or shrimp, but more often than not they're fine...so they say.

It seems there is a rule of thumb for the kinda reef safe triggers, the rule is if they have a rounded lower jaw they're "OK" like the blue throat, pink tail, Niger, and another I can't remember.
But If they have a more pointed mouth, like the Picasso or clown then these are no way reef safe.
I must add that there will always be exceptions a with all fish.
I should really sort this out!!

Thanks:
