Pic of the Week - Balistapus undulatus

Balistapus undulatus or Undulated Trigger. These fish are renowned for their aggressive behavior, territoriality and stunning coloration. This one was not the most cooperative model and as you can see, wanted to keep a close eye on what I was up to.

These have been found up to around a foot in the wild, more commonly seen around six to eights inches. These are the epitome of "not reef safe" as they will eat just about anything that they can fit in their mouths.
