Overview

The White Tip Triggerfish, also known as the Halfmoon Triggerfish, or Whitetail Triggerfish, has a brownish-black body with a blue underbelly. Yellow highlights the operculum and caudal fin (tail), which has a white tip.

A 125 gallon or larger aquarium with rocks and caves provides a good habitat, although it may rearrange the landscaping and rocks to its liking. It vocalizes using a "grunting" sound.

The White Tip 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: 1-1/2" to 2-1/4"; Medium: 2-1/4" to 3-1/2" Large: 3-1/2" to 4 3/4"
