will triggers eat sponges ?

Considering they pick up and move around rocks, I would say there is a darn good chance a trigger will rip it to shreds. Or it may do nothing.


I moved them out to the 120 RT and I guess there was some air in the bag after i submerged it in the tank and didint tie it properly so i think they got some air and the are not looking too good now..its hard to transfer tree sponges from tank to tank.. i wouldve been better off takin my chances leaving them with the triggers especially since my blue throat doesnt touch the tree sponge in the 120 for months now and a niger and picasso trigger are not the most aggressive triggers.

this is a good one, this is a bit passive aggressive behavior, may have that looked at.

to answer anyone who care the triggers when small will definately not touch the sponges...unless startving..keep them well fed and they are ok...


I have a Picasso in a tank with a couple of puffers and a damsel, and he is very aggressive, and he will bite...may not eat, but will bite anything in my tank. I would not put a sponge in with a picasso. I have a Niger in a different tank...it's got some cowfish and a few others. I have polyps and an anomone in this tank, and he does not bother any of them, but gets a tad aggessive when he is eating. I think the Niger would be a better choice if you are going to try it.

original post do triggers eat tree sponges ? does anyone know or should I google it and do some research ? lol can i get an answer ? and if you all feel yo uwill give me wrong info you will all be responsible for a tree sponge dying from a trigger eating them..so if anyone can simply answer the question that would be great without advising me to do research and without a whole story can anyone just say yes or no ? are triggers known to eat tree sponges its not that difficult....
... I literally want to find this guy and punch him repeatedly in the face and throat ! You are so uneducated yet so fucking pompous and arrogant its sickening! To know people like you exist is disgusting and to know you people are in this hobby...a hobby of high class people is egregiously disgusting! Go back to fresh eater black tetras and corey cats ! I literally registered to write this 12 years after the fact just to say your such a condescending, quilt throwing piece of shit! ...i came to see if nigers will eat sponges and i find a class A jerkoff! I have a big niger and a big huma huma together no problem but bought a second small niger for another tank but it has sponges...after reading this i never actually got the answer i needed but found i was so sick to my stomach after reading this worthless scumbags words i needed to say something even 12 years later...no living creature should be under your watch ! Uneducated dumb ass ! "Should i google it " bitch what the fuck do you think..." I have a bunch of books should i read them" what the fuck you think idiot..and lastly " i know a bunch of local hobbyists 40 50 years of knowledge " should i ask them ...man your fucking stupid! ...and then throw a quilt trip that if no one answers its everyones fault for not answering but yours THE ONLY FUCKING ONE THAT IS AT FAULT IS YOU THE ONE WITH THE TANK YOU STUPID FUCK! HEY OR OF THIS HOBBY YOU'RE USELESS!
