The Queen Triggerfish, Balistes vetula is a rare, beautiful and seasonal fish in Florida. During the summer months we find them in rubble areas and on the edge of the reef. After a nice long chase they will dart into a hole.
They are really easy fish to take care of. We normally get them to eat meduim Ocean Nutrition Pellets before we ship them out but to complete their diet you also want to feed them meaty foods and something to wear down their teeth (hard shelled crustaceans). We recommend a 200 gallon predator/ fish only tank for them. They are not reef safe and are aggressive fish like all triggerfish.
This trigger is about 7 inches long.
