Default FS: Adult femal blue jaw trigger

I bought a male/female pair a few weeks ago and recently they have started fighting. She is 4" Her fins are a little nipped but she eats great and does not have ich/velvet/fungal issues. I would prefer to keep her but I dont think they can get along. If you have a suggestion as to how to keep them from fighting versus an offer to buy please post! Thanks

Oh price, almost forgot. I paid $100 for the pair so I want $50

Were they in the same tank at the store?
How long have they been together?

The guy I bought them from had them together for over 2 years. They were not fighting the first week or 2. And they were obviously not fighting in his tank because they looked great when I got them. I am considering putting the male (bully) in the sump while th female regains her composure but the same thing will probably happen all over again.

Yeah maybe you could put him in the sump for a couple weeks and then add him back. Kinda like adding the most aggressive fish last. Worth a shot.

+100 only males have blue jaws and yellow in the fins. My female blue jaw just got 5" and turned into a male... I wouldn't call mine adult yet, because he is only half of full size. Here is a link with a pic of a male and female.... Blue Throat Triggerfish Got any pic's?

Try rearranging your rock when u put her back in and if both are males they should still get along but u must keep them fed heavily with lots of meaty foods
If u still want to get rid of her/him I will trade u some corals just LMK

Yeh it is definitely currently a male and female but the females tail does have a patch of yellow in it but her back fin and bottom fin have no yellow. I am pretty sure one is female right now but she may be morphing. If they have been together for 2+ years would the female still turn to a male. And yes trigger has been spoken for but if falls through I can do corals. Right now the male trigger is in the sump chilling
