They get to around 2 feet long so they are only appropriate for large fish only systems, but with age develop beautiful neon blue markings on their face. They have a reputation for being more mellow than other similar sized triggers, but don’t confuse that with weakness; they refuse to take any guff and will vehemently defend themselves against aggressors!
