Photo of the Week - The Golden Heart Triggerfish (Balistes punctatus)
We recently stocked up on the sticking aquatic beauty Golden Heart Triggerfish. This is a fish we recommend to intermediate hobbyist because they will need extra husbandry care to settle in its new aquarium home. This triggerfish can become rather stressed during acclimation and will require extra steps to be taken to help make them more comfortable. Not only is this fish aggressive, but it is also territorial, needless to say they need to be kept with tank mates of similar temperament. Provide an environment with plenty of hiding places so this fish can seek refuge. Also to mitigate aggressive behavior make sure that the tank is large enough for all fish to swim and have their own territory. For additional information on this trigger click here.
