    Balistoides Conspicillum AKA Clown Trigger

    Found: Tropical Indo-Pacific to Autralia

    Adult size: 19(50cm) to 20inches (51cm)

    Aquarium size: 135 gallon or bigger for adults

    Growth Rate: Grows quickly if feed well.

    About Clown triggers:
    Young specimens have large white spots over most of the body and head. The snout is yellow and the fins are pale colored. As the fish grows, a yellow saddle begins to show around the dorsal fin, and this becomes covered in small bluish-black spots. The yellow on the snout recedes to an area around the mouth and this bordered with a yellowish-white line.
    This species is one of the most striking of all the reef fishes when it is seen in its natural element. Dramatic, almost bizarre, coloration makes this species a prize among alot in the hobby. (Despite a number or drawbacks). The mortality rates of very small juveniles are often high. Large juveniles,adolescent, and adults, are typically very hardy. Some manifest a Jekyll and Hyde personality: amiable for many months, then suddenly turning Nasty.
    Nipping and even killing tankmates
    .

    Clown Trigger in home aquarium:
    It should be kept in a tank of its own or with other large fish where it can do no harm. It is very aggressive.Clown Triggers are NOT reef safe and have been known to attack its owners. Keep only one and house with large fish or fishes of equal belligerence.Large Lions,eels,groupers,puffers, and so on.

    Foods:
    Mussels,cockle,lance fish,shrimp,squid,clams,and fish.
    Also frozen food with marine algae and vitamin-enriched should be part of its diet.


    Happy Clown Trigger keeping!!
