      Scientific Name:Odonus niger
      Family: Balistidae
      Max. size: 50.0 cm TL (male/unsexed)
      Environment: reef-associated; oceanodromous; marine ; depth range 5 - 40 m
      Distribution: Indo-Pacific: Red Sea south to Durban, South Africa and east to the Marquesas and Society islands, north to southern Japan, south to the southern Great Barrier Reef in Australia and New Caledonia; throughout Micronesia.
      Morphology: Dorsal spines (total): 3; Dorsal soft rays (total): 33-36; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 28-31
      Biology: Occur in current-swept seaward coral reefs. Usually form aggregations and feed on zooplankton as well as sponges. Juveniles associated with isolated patches of rubble or crevices with proper-sized shelter holes. Oviparous
      aquarium Care:Has a temperature range of 72 - 81°F (22 - 27°C) and has a natural diet of zooplankton, small fishes, and 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.People say they are reef safe, yet, that's not a proven fact. And if fed well, it makes an interesting reef fish, yet still maintains a liking for shrimp and much smaller fishes.

    1. Nice photo of a very interesting fish. I've this type of trigger in one of my systems for over a year now. He doesn't eat my hermit crabs or other small fish (like small damsels, etc.) but does charge me if I'm next to the glass or have a hand in the tank. Maybe mine is a bit tempermental but still, watch out for the teeth!
