    I want to find a new home for my Picaaso, Niger and Clown Triggerfish. They are about 1 year old and about 4 to 5 ". I have been offered a home with a 750 gallon tank with a Purple and Yellow Tang, Green Moray and a Snowflake eel and a Bambo shark. Any opinions about how they would fair with that group?

    Wow! Can I live there?:D

    It would be hard to imagine them having any problems in a system that big.

    I guess it would have to depend on how big the green moray is. I saw a video online of a green moray eating a full gown trigger in the wild.

    I completely agree with this. I think you'll be okay for the most part, but I'd be worried if the moray was bigger.

    I would think that with a purple and yellow tang in the 750 tank you will be just fine. the tank is plenty large for the triggers to adjust and the tangs not to get to overly aggressive at first. eels are always a crap shoot as they will continue to grow in such a large tank.
