blue throat trigger

  1. Pennsylvania Reef Club (PRC)
    Our Blue Throat Trigger has been in our tank for almost three years. Great little fish, very friendly and fun to watch. ALWAYS is out to eat, and when the lights come on in the morning. Yesterday, he didn't come out at all. He stayed wedged in his sleeping spot, but was breathing, and moving his...

    Ok, I'm trying find to decide on a the BTT for my tank. I would like something with some character and not be such a scatty cat in the tank. I have read that they are somewhat reef safe. My Tank is over 100g with live rock and some corals mostly all toadstools, star polyps, and a duncan. The...

    Hey Everyone, I have recently decided that I would like to invest in a Blue Throat Trigger since they seem to be the most "reef safe" trigger. I realize this may be only true in certain cases so i wanted to know if anyone has owned this fish and if they were "good citizens" in your tank. And...

    Hey everyone, I decided that i want to invest in a blue throat trigger on account of they are supposedly the most "reef safe" trigger. I realize that there is always a chance that it may not be and I am willing to take the chance. I just wanted to know of anyone who has one of these fish and...

I took him back to my LFS, they said one of the other triggers they have...

    So I'm wanting to get at least two 'reef safe' triggers for my 200 mixed reef. I've been doing lots of research and want to go with a male bluethroat for sure. I don't know whether or not to get a female bluethroat or a pink tail trigger or both? Cause the female blue throat lacks a lot in...

    Hi, I have a blue throat trigger that I love. He is currently in a tank witha long spiny urchin and various snails. I added some scarlet hermits and found one dead and torn. I ordered a blue linkia star, forgetting about the trigger as he is fairly newly aquired. This star is well over 8" in...

    I have recently aquired a Blue throat trigger (who I love!). I was gone for the day and noticed that the GSP I had on my overflow box had dissapeared and only the superglue I used to attach them was left. I am guessing that it was the trigger. The only others that were recently added were, 2...

    I'm taking down my 110 reef, because I am trying to sell my house, and will have to move within the next few months. I know trying to sell this as a combo is futile, so I'm not going to screw around and try to sell this stuff all at once. I'm parting everything. I have had the tank set up for...

    So I'm looking for some innovative solutions to a pretty frustrating yet petty problem. I've got a 150 gallon barebottom tank, and I find that there is too much particulate that floats through the water column. It does not all seem to make it over into the sump. It's not terrible, but something...

    I would like to add some fish to my 55 gallon tank. Below is a list of some things I want and some I already have. I don't plan on getting all of them but I would like to mix and match and end up with about 10-12 fish and I just want to know if any of these fish cannot be housed with each other...

    So I took the proverbial plunge and ordered a 135-gallon tank yesterday. The new baby is 72"x18"x24 with a center trap overflow and a black back. SOOOOOOOOOOOO....what do you think I should do with it? Give me all your ideas on equipment, livestock, etc. Thanks in advance.

    I already own a Niger Triggerfish, and Im wanting to know if there are any other kind of reef safe Triggers...or any Triggers that are as well behaved in a reef environment as the Niger?

    Pictures forthcoming, but thought I'd gather info asap. My convict tang I got just the other day, which is in QT with 4 other fish, does not look good. It appears that the fish has something on it's mouth, whether it's torn flesh or something else I'm not sure. It's laying on the bottom...
