      Scientific Name:Balistoides conspicillum
      Max. size: 50.0 cm TL (male/unsexed)
      Environment: reef-associated; brackish; marine ; depth range 1 - 75 m
      Distribution:Gazetteer Indo-Pacific: East Africa south to Durban, South Africa and east through Indonesia to Samoa, north to southern Japan and south to New Caledonia.
      Morphology: Dorsal spines (total): 3; Dorsal soft rays (total): 25-27; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 21-27; Vertebrae: 18. Unique color pattern of large white spots on belly, black spots on yellow background on the back, yellow snout. A white or yellowish band across snout in front of eye. Lips and the area around mouth orange-yellow. A broad vertical white, slightly yellowish band on caudal fin. Scales enlarged above pectoral-fin base and just behind gill opening to form a flexible tympanum. Rows of small anteriorly projecting spines on caudal peduncle. A prominent groove extending anteriorly from front of eye for a distance of about 1 eye diameter. Mouth terminal. Caudal peduncle compressed. 39-50 rows of plate-like scales.
      Biology: A solitary species that occurs in clear seaward reefs adjacent to steep drop-offs. Uncommon to rare throughout most of its range. Diet consists of sea urchins, crabs and other crustaceans, mollusks, and tunicates
      Aquarium Care:Has a temperature range of 72 - 81°F (22 - 27°C) and has a natural diet of benthic invertebrate. Requires a meaty diet, including fortified brine shrimp, mysis, chopped fish or shrimp flesh, and meaty type frozen carnivore foods with two or three feedings per day. Can sometimes be a candidate for mixed company systems where other fishes are the same size, yet can also be extremely aggressive. Don't say you were not warned. Beautiful fish, but this species may be better/more safely kept with its own same size family members

    1. I have one 8" Clown Triggerfish. At the beginning he was shy but now he dominates the tank. This little guy tend to be curious. Whatever you feed him he will take it. He got his own personality. I would recommend this fish if ou have a large system.
