It is important to note that the Blue Throat Triggerfish requires a 30 gallon or larger aquarium with plenty of live rock for structure and hiding. Furthermore, they are mostly a peaceful fish that spends most of its time perching and swimming within the branches of hard corals. However, caution should be taken when adding the Blue Throat Triggerfish to an aquarium with small species of bottom dwelling gobies and blennies, since they are also bottom dwellers and may compete for food. Additionally, these fish can often be seen waiting and readying themselves for food to come by on rock perches.
