The Niger Trigger, Odonus niger, is a wonderfully colored triggerfish that is relatively peaceful. Its deep turquoise/grey body with neon blue face lining make for a stunning addition to any reef tank. They can be housed as multiples if introduced together to avoid territorialism. Sometimes, the Niger Trigger can be caught nipping on small ornamental shrimp and other inverts.
It is necessary to be cautious while handling the Niger Trigger because they have sharp teeth and can actually bite if agitated. They need at least a 55 gallons tank and a larger tank if more are to be kept. Tanks should have plenty of rock work and free swimming space. The Niger Trigger will primarily eat a omnivorous diet consisting of varied frozen meaty foods and algae based flakes.
Overwhelmed by how great condition the trigger i in for the low proce. Great size and addition to my system
Blue gem! Unique. Another that quickly became my favorite!
Awesome specimen at an awesome price. Arrived healthy and hungry and is growing in size almost daily.
This fish is a great fish and very peaceful. I love the color and my Niger used to make noises in the water close to the top. I recommend this easy to take care of fish for the beginner.
It’s name sounds funny
