Is there even a trigger than fits in a 60?
Every trigger I see at the various lfs's would have no issue starting off in a 60g. Ya they are gonna grow some quicker than others but it will take some time before you would even need to provide a larger home. I have 5 in my 90g mixed reef. My tank is packed with fish and corals so gonna go bigger soon.

They show no interest in them except the Clown on occasion will nip a smooth skinned acro colony, I keep it for him! I feed my fish 12 Hikari cubes and chunks of Rods in the afternoon so they are never really hungry. Maybe that's it but triggers don't have corals on there primary food list.
