I released a decent size Saddleback Clown into one of the tanks about a week ago; no one is bothering him. Such a cool swim pattern!

This is the one— I’ll be working on the other with the French Angel this upcoming week and ‘spiff it up’ for a photo. In this photo you can see that I recently added a bit more rock— I love an open look, but these fish needed a little more hiding space. I’m letting the sides and back algae-out, just keeping the front clean. I grew the large Goldline Rabbitfish from a Biota baby— but despite his raised poison spines the Clown Trigger and Emperor Angel take turns picking on him, and he mostly stays camouflaged (which is a shame because they are beautiful). I am probably going to remove him from this tank and try a different fish.

Your tank doesn’t have that ‘overcrowded with rock’ look. I like it. But mine is only a 150 so I had to be careful... I think you have a 220 (?) ;Cat
250; close enough! Do your triggers take bites at the rocks? How do you prevent their teeth from overgrowing?

Lol! It looks like a 250... I was going by memory and thought I had read 220. ;)

I feed a frozen Mussel every day, and let the shells accumulate on the bottom of the tank until I get to ‘tong’ them out every once in a while. I see the Clown carrying around the empty shells from place to place, so I assume that helps his teeth.
