Picasso Trigger

Picasso Trigger

The Picasso Trigger most certainly has one of the more unique colouration, its body looks like it has been painted by an artist. Its pattern consists of a tan body with gradient darker bands, and electric blue and dark lines on the forehead, with a yellow line from the two sides of its face. 

Requirements
This trigger requires a 400 litre or larger tank that includes a variety of liverock 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.

Suggestions
The Picasso Trigger is known to grow extremely quickly and dominate the aquarium, and therefore its important to not only have a large aquarium but also surround it with tank mates that can fend for themselves and are aggressive eaters alike the Picasso Trigger. 

Feeding
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.

  1. I love this fish. Triggers have a reputation for being aggressive but this fish seems about as docile as they get, my angelfish are far more aggressive. They are very smart as well(for fish) he’s learned that certain containers contain food and swims eagerly to the front and top of the tank when he sees them.
