The Blue Triggerfish, Black Triggerfish, or Redtooth Triggerfish has an upturned mouth with a protruding chin and it's color is a blue to purplish-blue with it's head sometimes going yellowish.
The first one of these that we saw came to the store wedged in a sea shell! The shell was the trigger's home and rather than try to remove it, the owner sold us the fish, shell and all. When we sold the fish to someone else, all we had to do was bag the shell so the triggerfish got to keep his own home through several moves.
The Blue Triggerfish, Black Triggerfish, or Redtooth Triggerfish can often be a peaceful aquarium fish, especially if they have plenty of room and are well fed. We have read in one reef book that this triggerfish are okay to keep in reefs, we would still be careful about invertebrates though and keep a watchful eye out for any trouble.

Fishnerd2000 - 2014-03-24 I'm wondering if I can get one or two Niger triggers for my 55gal? I have a snowflake, an African red starfish and two tomato clowns. Does anyone think it's safe please answer fast I would like to know. Thanks.
Jason - 2012-07-03 I have a niger triggerfish and when I first got him was doing fine eating flake food at the top of the water swimming around to say he was a regular fish and I had a happy tomato clown in as well tomato clown hurt him self got popeye and died. I had removed him from tank, clown that is, and now my tigger is sad isn't hiS regular self maybe getting some new friends will help ? Any ideas ? Thanks for any responses
Jason - 2012-07-03 I also had taken a water sample in to my locale Pet store and nitrate they said was high but not high enough to do harm and salt level was high so I fix those problems and to no avail. Never had so many problems with this can anyone help ?
Bill - 2012-07-03 Some aquarists prefer to keep the salt level low, as low as 1.017 ppm. This doesn't usually harm the fish and it has the benefit of making it more difficult for more harmful things to flourish in your tank.
