    It doesn't hurt that bad. Mine only drew blood once.

    Sack up!

    And absolutely gorgeous fish.

    Thanks Erin but he does like to hang out behind it, it is where he stays since he doesn't have any caves or tunnels to get in

    My friend Dennis who owned Coral Reef Connection told me a story about his dad during WW2. He came into the shop one day and was talking about these bastard fish that were brown and white that looked like polka dotted footballs that bit the hell out of them in the Pacific. Dennis said to him, "Did they look like this?" and pointed to a Clown Trigger. He dad says"Yea, that's the miserable little bastard, they just about ate us up when we went ashore at Kwajelien.

    The worst bite I've ever gotten was from a Black Caribe. Didn't bother me for over a year, then one day, he comes out hell bent for leather and flaps my left middle finger.

    I love triggers, I'm contemplating an Assassi when I set up a larger tank.

    I totally can't wait to get my big tank set up and have the triggers I want in it! It's going to be Tangs Puffers and Triggers!

    What's cool is to feed them an urchin and watch them dismantle it.
