The Humu Humu is commonly referred to as the Humuhumu Triggerfish, Picasso Triggerfish, or Humuhumunukunukuapuaa. It features striking coloration with line markings of yellow, blue and black on a white body. When startled, it emits a ?whirring? sound, and that is its unique feature. It is advised not to keep the Humu Humu with other triggerfish 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. It is easy to keep and is among the hardiest of all marine fish that makes the Humu Humu a very good choice for beginner aquarists. The Humu Humu mainly feeds on live, frozen, and flake foods and feeding several times a day with shrimp, mussels, and other kinds of chopped up fish is advisable for its continued good health. The Humu Humu can be aggressive towards the similar looking fishes and same size fishes. It should not be kept in a tank less than 60 gallon. The Humu Humu can become a great tank mates especially with the clown triggerfish, when added at the same time. It is not considered reef safe and cannot be kept along with living corals, and with other aggressive fishes. It thrives well in a temperature range of 74-80 degrees Fahrenheit, and pH of 8.1-8.4. It is best to feed them with tongs instead of hand as it might bite the hand accidently.
