Hi repper,

What is the size of your tank? Cramped space often results to bickerings.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

No problem with that then.
If you have inverts however, be careful with your triggerfish. Same applies to mixing small fish with lionfish.

Blue triggers are aggressive when they breed and are hatching eggs otherwise they are ok. Few fish will fish will interfere with a lionfish as a brush with spines results in poisonning. Both trigger and linfish will eat anything small enough to fit in their mouth.

Triggers

The Blue jaw is one of the most peacefull (if there is such a thing) type of Trigger out there. No worries unless you plan to add additional fish smaller or less aggressive down the road.

Holy Hell it's Kyle from Kyle. My old friend. Kyle has kept quite an aggressive yet peaceful FOWLR for quite some time. I've seen his triggers with his lions, all was well. Provide plenty of hiding places, rocks for territories and feed well.

I didn't know you two know each other. Especially when both of you are from Texas.
