Triggers are rough-and-tumble reef dwellers that often create problems in a community aquarium, but those from the genus Xanthichthys are comparably peaceful and can sometimes even be housed in a reef tank. Learn all about those “Marvelous Triggers” in Edward Adam Jackson’s article in the September 2011 issue of TFH http://www.tfhdigital.com/tfh/201109/#pg99.
