The Blue Throat Trigger, Xanthichthys auromarginatus, also known as the Bluethroat Trigger, Blue Chin Trigger, or Gilded Trigger, features a greyish-brown body with light blue spotting. It has yellow edged fins and a characteristic blue throat or chin area. It thrives best in tanks of at least 75 gallons with plenty of live rockwork creating hiding places and places to swim freely. Sometimes, the Blue Throat Trigger can make an audible grunting sound.They will take a varied diet of meaty foods. The Blue Throat Trigger can nip at corals and small inverts so take caution with tank mates. They are exemplar jumpers so please be sure the lid is tightly sealed to prevent escape. When introducing the Blue Throat Trigger to your tank it is often best to do so while it is a juvenile to allow it to acclimatize to the tank properly. Usually, males are more visually stunning than females. This species can be fun to watch as they will often pick up objects with their mouth and move them around the aquarium. 

Came in very skittish the first day. So far it has not even looked at any of my crabs. It does hang out by my cleaner shrimp throughout the day and has been getting clean. Very cool swimmer. Make sure to feed it sometime with an exskeleton to wear down its teeth. Going to get a male when I upgrade to my 8 foot 180.
