Pink Tail Trigger - OIAB Score

Recommended Posts

Hahaha, just a wee bit.  So far he is working on roughly egg sized rocks that I use for growing out my favorite favias, ugh!  A little glue on his mouth... I mean the rock should do the job.

I actually glued a tangs mouth shut once...cut a frag, glued it underwater, and the tang came over and started picking at the glue...next thing you know he has a mouth full of cyanoacrylate:(

Luckily it only lasted for a couple hours, and fell off on its own.

Some day perhaps, he is a shy guy though if I put hands in the tank.  Naso tang trusts me though, daughter pets him.

Love the arc eye. Saw a few last week while snorkeling of the big island. Also pink tailed and many other triggers. Hawks are one of my favorites. I only have a flame hawk. Great personalities.

Ah that is so cool you were able to see them in the wild!  Sounds like allot of fun.

I emailed your trigger last night and told him to make me some frags. Sounds like he obliged. Now if he would just get them in the mail that would be great!

Cool!  I like him, but he does assert himself in the tank.  Adding new fish between him and the yellow tang has proved difficult.

I wouldn't risk shrimp, he gets pretty hungry.  Snails seem ok, but hard to count.  There is a sea hare alive and kicking that I see most evenings.

Had the camera out for the zoa growout. Grabbed a pic of the hawk, he has been pretty cool in the tank but does own certain areas....

Just an update..

 

The trigger has remained reef safe and is a nice show piece but a tad aggressive.

 

He chomped my fang blenny clean in half after months together in peace.  Just decided he looked good (come on fang blenny, use that venemous bite...)  

 

Sigh, fang blenny turned into an expensive fish stick.

That sucks, sorry to hear about ol fang.

 

Going forward it's probably just cheap fish I suppose-to be safe that is.

 

Put a male cross hatch in there

What type of hawk is that?

Arc - Eye Hawk from Hawaii.  I like him but the flame hawks are probably allot prettier and cheaper.

Arc eyes also get a bit larger than the flame hawks but I really like them, you probably need a larger fish to hang with the triggers anyhow. Oh and as every one else has said, nice score and keep us updated on how well he behaves.

I think I am going to re-home this guy.  PM if interested he is relegated to the overflow for now.

 

Long story short, he has been reef safe (not tested with shrimp) and is a beautiful fish.  

 

He is just too big for the smaller fish I like keep.  The fang blenny was a good example, he eats small fish like french fries.
