Blue Throat Trigger
The Blue Throat Trigger has a blue/grey body, and is coated in light-blue spots. Additionally, the triggers fins are highlighted in vibrant yellow. It is not uncommon to house a pair of Blue Throat Triggers, with the male being the smaller of the two. A quick way to determine the sex of the fish is to note that the male has darker blue cheeks.
This trigger requires a 400 litre or larger tank that includes a variety of live rock and caves. However, it should also be noted if this fish does not like the current rock work in your tank it will almost certainly rearrange the rock itself. Also caution needs to be taken when looking to add this fish to your aquarium, as it may eat any crustacean and potentially small fish.
n the other hand, many aquarists have had great luck in housing this trigger without issue in a reef tank with invertebrates, crustaceans and small fish. Many hobbyists live by stating that these fish are actually peaceful and would do well in any environment, whilst others say differently. This fish really is a matter of trial and error as their temperaments seem to vary greatly.
This fish most certainly needs to be offered a wide range of meaty foods. These can range from small fish, shrimp, squid, clams and hard shelled foods to grind down their ever growing teeth.
