My specimen is roughly 5in in size is quite shy tends to move substrait and rock for a comfort zone tends to be slighty agressive durring feeding, like most triggers it prefers larger frozen shrimp and live shrimp, my specimen also has no issue with other species of trigger aswell, this was my third fish from live aqauria and yet again extremely impressed with fish health and service will not buy fish from anyone else but here!
