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. 

Very happy with my blue throated female trigger She arrived very healthy and good looking. Put her right in with my male blue throat in one of my reef tanks. Been two weeks now, eating like a champ and becoming very social.
