FS: Medium/Large Male Blue Jaw Trigger

    My pair must have had a breakup as the female has turned male, I now have 2 male blue jaws and that eventually won’t end well.

    Had him for 3+ years, medium/large, very fat and healthy. $70 pickup from Broomfield

    How large is that guy? Do you have a minimum tank size recommendation?

    They won't eat coral, but they are not considered "reef safe" because they will eat shrimp and snails.

    Would want him to go to a 180 tank if possible, he’s about 6” Long right now and likes open swimming space. Lots of personality, has been good in my Reef tank, he may have eaten a few peppermint shrimp but hasn’t touched my Coral Banded Shrimp or Cleaner Shrimp. May be the culprit for eating a few snails, but never witnessed anything, I think the key is to keeping him fed and he won’t need to look for other food in the tank.

    I have had about twenty X. triggers over the years and none of them have ever touched any invert. Most of the stories that you hear are supposition with only a very few actual eye-witness accounts of any ill deeds - and I have an eye-witness account of a purple tank eating a shrimp, so any fish can go rogue. IMO, these are more reef safe than non-Genicanthus angelfish or any tang or rabbit.

    These are good reef citizens for the larger tank:

    BTW - I have multiple males on many occasions without any issues.

    The X. triggers do not have the anatomy to eat snails or get them out of the shell. Perhaps these fish are being mistaken for Rhinecanthus triggers, which can and do.

    Send me a PM if you do not find a new home over the weekend. 225g tank here and a very large love for reef-safe triggers.
