The Crosshatch Trigger, Xanthichthys mento, also known as the Blue Cheekline Trigger, exhibits an elegant checkerboard pattern and texture across its olive green body. Its multicolored tail contrasts beautifully with the electric-blue lines across its face. The Crosshatch is one of the more luxurious and rare Triggerfish species on the marine aquarium market. It is quite the opportunity to have the chance to put this beauty in your tank and care for it.
They can grow large in the wild, but stay relatively small in the tanks so a tank of at least 125 gallons should be prepared to house this fish. Inside, there should be plenty of live rock ledges and caves for the Crosshatch - open swimming space is necessary as well. Like other Triggers, the Crosshatch will use its mouth to rearrange rocks and other things in the tank making it a great fish to observe its behavior. Caution should be had when picking tank mates. They may become predatory to small fish and small inverts. The Crosshatch Trigger eats a carnivorous diet of finely chopped frozen or live meaty foods and will also take enriched marine algae. Not only will the Crosshatch Trigger instantly liven up your tank and add and air of elegance and splendor, it is a hardy and easy to care for fish that is fun to watch.
