Product Description

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.


Please Note:  Any new fish purchased from us or from a local pet store should to be quarantined.  All fish from anywhere in the wild can be possible carriers of bacteria and protozoa that can lead to an infection in your system, so we always recommend that you use some sort of quarantine system prior to adding them to your system.  If you have a fish only system and can medicate the whole system, you may not need a separate quarantine tank.  If you have a reef system that cannot be medicated, a good ultraviolet sterilization system should prevent any kind of disease outbreak.  We medicate our system for bacterial infections and protozoans, but because we don’’t always hold our fish for long periods of time, there is no way to be sure all the protozoan cysts have been killed.  A little bit of prevention will save you lots of trouble down the line.

    This is beautiful fish, and the fish I received looks even more beautiful than the picture. I can tell KPA took care in catching and maintaining the fish. It does worry me to buy fish online, but KPA made the risk well worth it….Thanks KPA
