Overview

The Hawaiian Black Triggerfish, also known as the Indian Triggerfish, or Black-Finned Triggerfish, has a brown body and black fins with white lines at the base of the dorsal and anal fins.

A 90 gallon or larger aquarium with rocks and caves provides a good habitat for the Hawaiian Black Triggerfish, however, it will tend to rearrange the landscaping and rocks.

The Hawaiian Black 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"

Customer Testimonials

J Cole Jacksonville , FL
This is a wonderful fish. Not aggressive toward tankmates; active; and very personable. Best of all, he does not rearrange my live rock. He swims back and forth with the tangs.
