Blue Throat Trigger (Xanthichthys auromarginatus)
AKA Red Tooth Trigger, Niger Trigger
30cm rarely seen larger than 20cm in the home aquarium
Suggested minimum aquarium size when adult:
Will accept frozen Plankton, Mysis and Brineshrimp, may take flake food when settled.
Good Trigger for the reef aquarium, although larger specimens may eat small shrimps, e.g. Sexy Shrimps.
One of the most peaceful Trigger fish, mixes well with most fish. One male can be kept with several females, if all added at the same time. Avoid keeping with other Triggers.
Males have a prominent Blue Throat. An active swimmer once settled, so ensure plenty of open space.
