The Red Tail Triggerfish or Sargassum Triggerfish is a beauty from the caribbean ocean, it has a grayish blue decorated body with a reddish tail and bright glowing iridescent eyes.


The Handsome Red Tail Triggerfish gets noticed with it's elaborate colored body; it is a great choice for triggers in a community tank and many hobbyist have had great success with the friendly Red Tail Triggerfish in a reef environnment. The Red Tail Triggerfish is very active and should have lots of water movement with plenty of swimming area in the aquarium,  also have plenty of live rock for shelter.  Use caution with invertebrates 


Triggerfish are durable specimens that require large tanks with plenty of live rock.  They have sharp teeth and powerful jaws for crushing.  Belligerent triggers will attack all invertebrates and most will try to rearrange live rock.  Keep in aggressive fish only tank with few exceptions.  It is best to add triggerfish of the same size and at the same time to prevent skirmishing.
