Holy smokes you weren't joking about that fuscus. Not only is that one of the nicest triggers I've seen, its one of the nicest fish I've seen period. Tank looks fantastic man.

Nice pictures. The Fuscus is looking good and it's cool to see the early coloration. The shoal and crosshatch are beautiful.

How did you attached the wood to the metal stand? I've heard wood + metal stand + humidity = problems. Any issues?

great looking fish .I guess that the guy in hawaii got you the cross hatch? Looks like your tank is going to be amazing good luck with all the trigs

Are you worried about your gh trigger eating any of your smaller triggers? My 6" GH has eaten a 4" wrasse, and I'm hopping he doesn't go for anything else...

who on the board has those monster size(15"+) queen triggers?
maybe its the one in post #106 sneaking into the pic on the right?

i remember seeing videos feeding the queen and they look like they can snap your entire finger off with one bite.

Your tank looks awesome and nice to see your Titan. I am completely obsessed with Titan growth rates. So your guy/gal was 1 inch three years ago? and how big now if you don't mind me asking. My guy has gone from about 3 inch to 5 inch in the last 4 years. About 1/2 an inch a year and I power feed him all sorts of fresh seafood and pellets. In comparrison my Jewel Damsel went from 1 to 5 inch in a year. Titans just seem to never grow which makes me think those 2 footers that you see attacking divers must be 30 years old or something.

I also agree the Titans seem kind of mellow. While my guy seems quite bold and I doubt anything near his size would beat him up he doesn't seem like the killer they get branded. If I was to throw a more mellow fish in the tank I think the jewel would kill it and the titan ignore it.
