The Undulate Triggerfish, also known as the Orangelined Triggerfish or Orangetailed Triggerfish, has an attractive, emerald-green body with yellow-orange vertical stripes.
A 180 gallon or larger aquarium with large pieces of rock to form caves is ideal. It will rearrange the aquarium landscaping and rocks. It vocalizes using a "grunting" sound. It is a hardy fish, but aggressive towards other fish.
The Undulate 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.
Approximate Purchase Size: Small: 1" to 2"; Medium: 2" to 3-1/2"; Large: 3-1/2" to 5"

I love triggers but these guys are devils! Undulate Triggerfish are awesome fish to watch but do not put them with slower fish. Mine got along well with Damsels but chased my Picasso. He is in a tank by himself now after biting my Leopard Shark a few times. Be careful selecting tankmates and enjoy this fish; they are beautiful!
Very hardy fish but very mean! After 8 months I had to separate him from the tank because he was nipping my lionfish tail and chasing my miniata grouper. He will nip at and possibly eat all snails, smaller fish, and he even bit me. Be careful!
An attractive fish but quite nasty. Will bite you if it can. Will be the boss of the tank in no time, especially when it gets older. Is aftaid of no fish. Even more aggressive then the Queen Trigger. Very hardy.
