      Scientific Name:Pseudobalistes flavimarginatus
      Max. size: 60.0 cm TL (male/unsexed)
      Environment: reef-associated; marine ; depth range 2 - 50 m
      Distribution: Indo-West Pacific: Red Sea south to Natal, South Africa and east through Indonesia to the Tuamoto Islands, north to southern Japan, south to Samoa.
      Morphology: Dorsal spines (total): 3; Dorsal soft rays (total): 24-27; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 22-25. Scales relatively large.
      Biology: Found on lagoon slope and floor, also coral reefs. Generally solitary or in pairs. Feeds on tips of coral branches, gastropods, crustaceans, foraminiferans, and tunicates and also on sea urchins. Oviparous
      Aquarium Care:Has a temperature range of 72 - 81°F (22 - 27°C) and has a natural diet of zooplankton, small fishes, and 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. Has a habit of blowing away sand to expose benthic invertebrate. Extremely aggressive and very possibly should only be housed with own family members. May blow jests of water into the sand in search of prey, and will probably rearrange aquarium décor. Will eat corals.
