The Queen Triggerfish comes from the reefs of the Caribbean Ocean, and is a very striking fish that will add a new dimension of color and shape to the large marine fish only aquarium. They are triangularly shaped, and are mostly yellow and green, with an interesting pattern of lines circling their eyes. Their fins are blue to purple in color and the tail is forked.
A 180-gallon or larger aquarium with plenty of live rock for hiding and grazing is suitable for this species. It will rearrange the landscaping and rocks as it wanders in and out of the caves. These triggerfish are not safe for the reef aquarium, and will eat any crustacean in the aquarium. They are one of the more aggressive fish that should be added last to your collection.
The Queen Triggerfish needs a varied diet of meaty foods including; squid, krill, clams, small fish and hard shelled shrimp to help wear down their ever growing teeth.
