    niger triggers are considered "more peaceful" than other triggers. still a hit or miss though. Could have a munch on some of your corals

    Cocoa,
    No trigger is completely reef safe, as they like to taste everything, including corals and clams. The Pink-Tail Trigger (Melichthys niger) eats primarily in the water column, and they are viewed as most reef safe of the triggers, that is, crustaceans are dinner, but they normally leave corals alone, especially if they are well fed. Downside is they reach 14 inches long fairly quickly, so you'd need at least a 100 gallon and perfect NSW to keep one. They are endemic to Hawaii, so they are usually in very good shape in shops.

    Niger, pink-tail, crosshatch, to name a few but the problem is these guys get big FAST!! What tank do you want to put a trigger in?
    Another consideration is that any trigger you buy is going to eat the clean up crew at some point. That means your tank will need more maintance from you. Which can be a pain the you-know-what. (Think hair algae)
    Just something to consider.

    Freshwater since 1998, saltwater since 2000.
    6 FW tanks, 1 SW tank.
