I have a Niger Trigger and a male BlueJaw that have been tank mates for several months. Recently the Niger is acting more aggressive towards the blue jaw, nipping, chasing, etc. They get fed well so I don't understand what's going on. Anyone have any ideas about how to calm them down?

Sorry to hear that. That sucks... How big is your tank? As they start to get bigger they’re territories will get bigger too. I know multiple types of triggers in the same tank can be tricky for this exact reason. You can try adding more rock to provide more hidding for the less dominate. Also switch up the aqua scape to throw off their established territories... you’re already keeping them well fed so that helps. Sorry I know this is stuff you probably already know but hopefully it helps.

Thank you for the help, I have a 100g display. They are close to the same size...about 4". I will look into adding some more hiding spots and switching things up inside
