The Assasi Triggerfish is a beautiful and intelligent fish that makes a wonderful addition to any home aquarium. Not only is it friendly and interactive, but it also has a unique vocalization. It is essential to provide a large enough habitat with rocks and caves, as it can rearrange the landscaping while exploring. An aquarium of 180 gallons or larger is ideal since it will give it enough space to move around and feel safe. Furthermore, these fish make great conversation pieces and are sure to be a hit with all your friends and family. With the proper care and environment, the Assasi Triggerfish can be a wonderful pet for years to come.

The Assasi Triggerfish is a tropical fish that needs a varied diet to help wear down their ever growing teeth. They especially enjoy squid, krill, clams, small fish and hard shelled shrimp.
