The Humu Humu features striking coloration with line markings of yellow, blue and black on a white body. It is also known as the Picasso Trigger. On startling, 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 making 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 similar looking fishes and same size fishes. It should not be kept in a tank less than 30 gallon. The Humu Humu can become a great tank mates especially with the clown triggerfish, when added at the same time. It is absolutely reef safe and can be kept along with living corals, and with other aggressive fishes. It may pick at clams or other smaller reef fishes and therefore should be kept away from the Humu Humu. It thrives well in a temperature range of 74-80 degrees Fahrenheit, and pH of 8.1-8.4.
