what do you mean he's aggro? I have had tons of them and they never showed any aggresion. I found one in a coral tank the other day, must of been there for months now never even knew he was there, shared the tank with some cleaner gobies(very small fish), cleaner and peppermint shrimps

I dont think it's aggro they wanna grab and run as quickly as they can, they are very shy, so dont like to spend time in the open

that fish is harmless,both my brothers got them in ther tanks and u never see them.
they just collect ther food and retreat under rocks.
They have small gobies,chromis all sharing the same space.

Your Trigger might eat him , they love inverts as far as I remember.

Mine has been with some very agro triggers for years and never any issues see they pack a moerse punch if they want but they will only do so in defence. Its funny how sometimes my undulated trigger used to think the lobstaer was a cleaner shrimp and bother the lobster all the time, every now and then the lobster would grab hold of the trigger give him a few snot klappe then let him go again

I cut 2 large finger leathers yesterday, but they havn't attached yet, although they do so quickly. There are heaps of monti ditada and some capricornis which you can have anyway. Blue/ brown zoos, star polyps. Maybe you'd better come and see what you want? Or should I bring some of everything?
