A 125 gallon or larger aquarium with rocks and caves is an ideal environment for the Blue Throat Triggerfish. This species of fish is known to be very active, rearranging the landscaping and rocks in the aquarium to its liking and producing a unique grunting sound, often referred to as “talking”. The Blue Throat Triggerfish is a great fish for any experienced aquarist looking for an interesting, interactive pet. Additionally, the Blue Throat Triggerfish is surprisingly hardy and can be kept with a wide range of other species, making it a great addition to any aquarium.
This triggerfish requires a diet that includes meaty foods, such as squid, krill, clams, small fish, and hard shelled shrimp to help wear down its teeth.
