The Clown Trigger is a solitary fish, which has a dark brown body with large white spots on the underside. With its stunning body markings, the Clown Trigger makes a captivating addition to any aquarium. It is one of the most aggressive triggers, and should never be kept with smaller fish or invertebrates. Since it might topple corals, the Clown Trigger is not considered reef safe and should not be kept in reef aquariums. It becomes a hardy fish once it acclimatizes in an aquarium and starts eating properly, therefore it can also be recommended to beginners. The Clown Trigger features sharp teeth that can bite when frightened. Also, it has strong jaws that can be used to crush and eat sea urchins, crustaceans and hard-shelled mollusks. Being a large fish, the Clown Trigger needs to be housed in large aquariums of 75 gallons or more. It prefers an aquarium with lots of caves and overhangs to explore as well as lot of open space to swim in. The Clown Trigger thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit and pH of 8.1-8.4. It can be fed with food that includes meaty foods and vegetables, along with chopped up sea foods such as shrimps and clams. The Clown Trigger should be fed at least twice a day of its continued good health.
|Awesome Color - Great Fish|
|While I didn't splurge for the show clown, the clown trigger I received was magnificent. The colors are incredible. It is by far the most stunning fish in my collection. The fish also has plenty of personality. It follows me around after one day. It is a bit aggressive so be cautious. If thinking about adding the clown trigger to your collection, I would definitely recommend from saltwaterfish.com.|
