I love this fish and keep seeing them in the LFS. The tank is a 100g reef. well going to be a reef. I have heard mixed things about these in a reef tank.

I know he will eat crabs and ornamental shrimp but other than hermits i dont plan on any crabs, never really been a shrimp person either. If it would work I would sacrafice the number of fish and he would most likely go in last.

I'm interested in this too. I know it's kinda asking for trouble, but triggers are awesome.

I had a blue throat in my 120 reef tank with success! The only issue we had was for the swallow tail angel we had,,,,, The trigger liked the taste of his tail!!! But as far as corals go, he never ate them but would try and eat my peppermint shrimp..

yeh i realized the tigger thing after but cant find a way to change it on the poll so o well. He might have a little problem underwater. maybe some scuba gear would fix that. but i will definatly look into some of the Xanthichthys genus

Xanthichthys are more likely to eat crustaceons rather than corals. Get a crosshatch pair!
I'd have to sell a lot of frags to justify a crosshatch pair! I've never seen them for less than $800. My blue jaw pair was awesome, though. Sometimes I wish I hadnt gotten rid of them. Definitely reef safe, and mine never got near any crustaceans.
