Thoughts on a blue throat trigger added to mixed reef?
That's debatable but I'd be more concerned about what size tank it's going in? They get big and need lots of room to swim.
Following along.... I ve thought about this also but had the same concerns as civiccars. I have a 180 and I'm not sure if that is quite big enough.... I assume the Niger Trigger gets to be about the same size....
Blue throat-9" Niger trigger-1'
These are voracious and can wreak havoc on water quality.Probably the worst kind of fish for a reef tank besides a grouper or lionfish.
A large system is required ime.
Hi there. I've had both of these fish in the past in a mixed reef The blue throat is a very active fish constantly swimming up-and-down the tank so likes lots of swimming space but somewhere to hide at night as both fish like to have their own special place at night between the rocks with the niger trigger not so active as the blue but once it reaches 5 to 6 inches it will more and lightly terrorise any small fish you have in the tank ,
Both of them were perfectly fine with any corals in the tank. But if you have any type of shrimps they will disappear over time.

Check out pink tail triggers, a friend has one in his mixed reef that is a model citizen, as long as everyone understands that it is his tank lol
