The Pinktail Trigger has a beautiful emerald-green body with bright pink tail that makes it a captivating addition to any reef tank. It should be kept in a tank not less than 60 gallons or larger aquarium. The Pinktail Trigger also requires many live rocks and caves that provide a good environment to this beautiful fish. Though it eats some crustaceans and small fish present in the wild, it is considered reef safe but with caution. The Pinktail Trigger needs a varied diet that includes meaty foods that includes squid, krill, clams, small fish and hard shelled shrimp to help wear down their ever growing teeth. The Pinktail Trigger thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit and pH of 8.1-8.4. It acts passive and makes a good choice for a beginner aquarist. It is advised not to keep the Pinktail Triggerfish with predatory fishes to maintain a peaceful tank, but even if the same is present, then be sure to provide it enough space and caves or rocks to hide. The Pinktail Trigger features strong teeth and jaws, and may chew through items in their aquariums. The Pinktail Triggerfish is one of the few Triggers that are a pleasure to keep. If more than one are to be kept in the same tank, it is best to add a male and up to several females at the same time.

The Pinktail Trigger has a striking emerald-green body and a bright pink tail. Yellow accents the body at the face and pectoral fins with darker flecks on the scales.This trigger will grow to almost 14 inches in length.Provide rockwork and caves and open swimming areas for this fish to feel at home.This is one of the few triggers that can be kept in a reef aquarium. This trigger will not harm sessile invertebrates but larger specimens may eat ornamental shrimp.This is a good choice for the new hobbyist.Offer a meaty diet of enriched mysid, chopped clams and squid and fish and shrimp. Feed 3 times per day for optiemal health. Maintain good water quality.
