Triggerfish are very hardy specimens that adapt well to aquarium life if provided with a large tank and ample hiding places. Triggerfish reach an average size of six to ten inches in the home aquarium and often become very aggressive toward the same species and other tank mates. Smaller Triggers grow quickly, and are usually more docile in adulthood than if matured in the wild.

Triggerfish are some of the most intelligent, hearty and attractive fish available to the marine aquarist. Named for their “trigger” which they use to secure themselves inside crevices in the reef, triggerfish are gregarious and readily recognizable fishes that can either be a fantastic addition to your reef tank or the end of it.
