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 an aquarium. They can be housed as multiples if introduced together to avoid territorialism. Given their carnivorous diet for invertebrates, they are not recommended for reef aquariums and do well in FOWLR tanks. 

It is necessary to be cautious while handling the Niger Trigger because they have sharp teeth and can actually bite if agitated. They should be kept in a tank of at least 180 gallons with 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. 

The Niger Trigger is a stunning fish with beautiful vivid color that makes a splendid addition my saltwater aquarium tank. REally pleased
