The Bursa Triggerfish is also known as the Black Patch Triggerfish or Blackbelly Triggerfish. It features half white and half yellow face along with a pencil-thin moustache and a colorful mask across the eyes. With its black circular area on the abdomen, the Bursa Triggerfish makes a great captivating addition to any reef tank. It exhibits a ?grunting? sound, which makes this fish unique and different from all others in the tank. The Bursa Triggerfish needs a varied diet of meaty foods such as squid, krill, clams, small fish and hard shelled shrimp to help wear down their ever growing teeth. It is advised not to keep the Bursa Triggerfish with predatory fishes to maintain a peaceful tank, but even if the same is present, then be sure to provide them enough space and caves or rocks to hide. Since it is easy to keep and is among the hardiest of all marine fish that makes the Bursa Trigger a very good choice for beginner aquarists. Young Bursa Triggers are friendly, but with age the same trigger becomes a bit disorderly and territorial. However, the Bursa Trigger is also one of the least aggressive of all Triggers. It is hardy and tolerant species who thrives well in a temperature range of 74-82 degrees and a pH range of 8.1 to 8.4. Near the area in front of the tail the Bursa Triggerfish have some prickly, spike-like rows of spines, which scratches and causes injury to a person or other fishes.ÿSince the Bursa Trigger feeds on tunicates, mollusks, crustaceans, corals, fish, and sea urchins, it is considered non-reef safe. The Bursa Trigger features strong teeth and jaws and may chew through items in their aquariums.ÿÿ
