The niger trigger is unassuming at first but the longer you look at and appreciate its velvety blue scales the more you will come to appreciate their beauty. The niger is considered one of the few reef safe triggerfish though they can become belligerent as they grow older and tend to rearrange rockwork to their liking. A tank of at least 180 gallons is required for an adult niger.
