The Clown Triggerfish (Balistoides Conspicillum) are one of the most aggressive triggerfish, if not the most. Clown Triggers are a highly aggressive, predatory species endemic to the Indo-Pacific. All shown here with one of them filmed in store a few months ago! Other than their amazing coloration and markings, they have eyes that have evolved to work independently of each other in order to scan the reef for prey or threats.
Clown Triggers can also use their forward dorsal spine to securely lock themselves into crevices in the reef (This is how Triggerfish get their name) while sleeping and they also have the ability to produce a grunting sound when agitated or disturbed.

Ideally, Clown Triggers should be provided with atleast a 600 litre aquarium with a sand substrate and plenty of securely placed live rock structure for hunting, shelter, and territory. They should also be provided with a large, open swimming channel where they can cruise around the aquarium at their leisure. Although they are an extremely hardy species, Clown Triggerfish should be kept in pristine and stable water conditions with plenty of water movement as well as surface agitation to assist with efficient oxygenation. They are big and messy eaters and can have a substantial biological impact upon their aquarium; they require a strong, high quality system with plenty of biological and mechanical filtration along with a good Skimmer.

The Clown Triggerfish (Balistoides conspicillum) is probably the most sought after of the triggerfish species. This is predominantly due to the bold, striking beautiful, colour patterns across the body. Although such a sought after species, they are also one of the most aggressive and to a point, destructive of the inhabitants we keep in captivity. The Clown Trigger requires a tank in the region of around 350 gallons, with lots of clear swimming space. As with almost all Triggerfish species, the Clown will without a doubt, re arrange however you currently have your aquariums rock work and anything attached to its placement. Care should be taken when housing one of these species, they are extremely aggressive to other inhabitants and ideally should be housed with other, large, aggressive species. A beautiful species, that resembles no other fish and will certainly stand out, when housed correctly.

Raising awareness, for the correct way, to care for our beautiful ocean creatures.
