It kills me to do this but for the well being of my other fish, I have no choice...Richard has to go. He's a 4" male Blue Throat Trigger and I've had him for just under 2 years. He's totally reef safe, hasn't eaten any of my snails or hermits, but fights non stop with my Scopas tang. I just added an Orange Spot goby and he totally annihilated him in about 20 minutes. He's healthy, fat and eats like a pig. I won't sell him to just anybody, your tank has to be 100+ gallons. I'm looking for $60 for this beauty. If interested shoot me a pm.

That sucks Mike, if I had my FOLWR up and running Id take him but i think he might be to aggressive in my 165, might take out a couple of the small fish I have in there.

I have 2 Blue Throat Trigger Males and 1 female on this Hawaii order, so I will know next week what comes in.

Just to add, he's perfectly safe with all my corals and clams and hasn't touched anything he's not supposed to. He was good buddies with my 5" foxface until I moved the tang in. I'd prefer him to go to a well established system and an experienced person, preferably someone in here I know. It's a hard decision but I'll continue to collect pm's and go from there.

Thanks to everybody that showed interest, sorry for not replying to all the pms, but there were quite a few. Tough decision, funny how you get attached to something like a fish. He's off to a new home tomorrow.

Thanks Mike, Richard is doing very well in the 165 gal & has a bunch of new friends now. I will be looking into getting a lady friend for him too.
