View Full Version : picasso triggerfish for trade
03/07/2009, 07:26 PM
just picked a picasso trigger up from aqua tech but guess i should have held off and done my research first as im already missing some chunks off my corals and a fish. Needless to say i can't really keep him in my tank. Very nice looking fish and very healthy but just can't keep him with my corals and that. Wouldn't mind maybe trading for other fish or corals or even a rbta. let me know if anyone is interested im going to try and catch a picture of him here in a bit and post it. thanks

You should have asked if it was reef safe....they love softies...and bully smaller fish...

I has one way back when my tank was Fish Only. Cool little fish.

I did too.....and I had a big lion also...I kinda miss them....but that was a few years ago...if my 410k wasn't tanking, along with everything else....I'd like a 75 gal fish only....

yeah that was dumb on my part not to ask. ill never not ask again or do research before hand thats for sure. here is a picture though not the greatest and my daylights just kicked off when i was trying to get a few good shots.

i wish it did too. wouldn't mind setting up a fish only aquarium but the funds are not available plus don't feel like moving two tanks here in a few months

Everyone should buy and carry Scott Michael's Marine Fishes book. While not perfect, would have given you a clue. Other option is to ask at LFS to see book and what it says. Most have handy.

I have a couple of those books....most say they(insert fish name here) are unsafe with inverts or something of that nature....even though I've experienced the opposite...most say they are coral nippers also....I think it just depends on the personality of the fish....but in this case....triggers in general....don't play nice....

How big is the Picasso? I am currently setting up another tank for a couple aggressive fish. I just put a Sargassum Trigger in my tank a couple weeks ago, If it does not "play nice"... I will BBQ it. lol

from mouth to tail its pretty close to 3 inches. i think it only nipped at my scissor tail fish because it wanted its hiding spot in my tank other than that it was afraid of my damsels.
