    Hey there, two weeks I ordered a Humu trigger from liveaquaria.com. When he arrived the exterior shipping bag had been punctured and some of the water from shipping had leaked out of his bag. I called Live Aquaria to let them know after I began acclimating him. He's been in my 65 gallon FOWLR...

    Hey guys. I recently added a piccaso trigger to my dp tank. At the LFS it was not spitting out sand, like an engineer goby does. Why is it doing this now?:/ will it always do this or can I do something to stop it. I fed it octopus and it stopped for a few minutes... And now it's back at it...

    Hello everyone, I need some help with an ID for some white spots on my Pink Tail Trigger. This is my favorite fish and I am hopeful it will get better. I do not want it to die, nor do I want it to infect any of the other fish if it is Ich. None of the others show any sign of spotting. The fish...

    I have an abundance of aiptasia growing in my reef tank. They are pest anemone and are killing my Kenya tree, I believe. I have a tank that houses a trigger, would I be-able to put a rock in there just covered only with aiptasia for him to eat? Then I could just put the clear rock back in my...

    About a week ago my bluechin triggerfish stopped eating completely for some reason. I have tried feeding silversides, mysis, squid, scallops, shrimp, and krill with no luck. The other fish in my tank are eating as usual and have been really enjoying the increase in feeding that i have been doing...

    I have a clown trigger fish with two white spots on him. One is on his fin and one is on his tail. I was curious if this would go away or if I need to add some microbe-lift to the tank. He looks healthy besides the two spots. Thanks in advance
