Photo of the Week - Crosshatch Trigger Male

Xanthichthys is a small group of triggers that are considered "reef safe", meaning that they are not likely to eat sessile invertebrates (motile invertebrates are a completely different story). They are found all over the tropical and subtropical Pacific ocean, usually in association with reefs and rocky outcroppings. Only the males of the species develop these outstanding colors.
