A 300 gallon or larger aquarium with rocks and caves provides a good environment. The Bluelined Triggerfish will rearrange the landscaping and rocks. It can sometimes be heard making a grunting sound.

The Bluelined 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: Tiny: 3/4" to 1" Small: 1" to 2"; Medium: 2" to 3-1/2"; Large: 3-1/2" to 5"

Customer Testimonials

A very aggressive fish. Not quite as aggressive as the Queen Trigger, but close. Will re-arrange all things in aquarium and will nip at most fish. Should only be keep with large and aggressive fish , larger then himself. Very pretty and personable, and a great eater.
