The Hybrid Melichthys Triggerfish is a one of a kind and a first here at Quality Marine! We believe this Triggerfish will grow quite large and will need a substantial amount of swimming space as an adult. So, an aquarium size of at least 125 gallons is recommended. Create a setup with plenty of hiding spots, caves, and structures. This Triggerfish may rearrange the substrate and decorations, so secure items well. In house, we are feeding it a variety of Gamma Frozen Cockle-In Shell, Gamma Frozen Krill Pacifica and Nutramar Marine Complete Shots.

What triggers are the parents?? Pretty trigger :)
This is a very unusual fish! Based on the origin, coloration, markings, and striped pattern running from the caudal peduncle down the length of the fish, we believe its a hybrid Indian Triggerfish (Melichthys indicus) x Pinktail Triggerfish (Melichthys vidua) with an unusual yellow dorsal and anal fin.
