Photo of the Week - Balistapus undulatus

Balistapus undulatus is commonly called the Undulated Triggerfish, but it is also frequently called the Orange Lined Triggerfish. They are a gorgeous, very hardy trigger with a small adult size as far as triggerfish go. The caveat is that there are few fish in the hobby that are more aggressive. It must be housed with other fish that have equally bad attitudes, or brilliantly efficient self defense mechanisms, or both.
