I would not put a trigger of any sort in with corals or invert as they will kill them. Another thing watch out for the sea apple as if it dies it will kill off everything in the tank. You can risk doing it but I would not. When they die they release a very harmful toxin.

There's another thing with sea apples. They release toxins immediately as a form of defense if provoked by an intruder or predator.

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.

Most corals will also release toxins if placed to close together. You can think of it as a chemical war in your tank.
