Rhinecanthus Triggerfish should be added to well established aquariums with plenty of room to swim. Plenty of rock work with caves and crevices should be provided for hiding. Triggerfish are known to turnover rocks, rubble, benthic invertebrates and corals. Provide a sand bed with rubble and seashells to turnover while hunting for prey. Rhinecanthus Triggerfish are carnivores feeding on small fish, starfish, crabs, shrimp, snails, urchins and may consume some algaes. They are capable of breaking off the spines of urchins and blowing water to turnover urchins and attacking the underside. They are hardy and beautiful but quite aggressive. Triggerfish should only be kept with large fish that are not easily harassed. A diet of meaty based foods should be provided. May loose colouration if not adequately fed. Triggerfish should be kept singly or mated pairs as they can be aggressive. Care must be taken when placing hands in the aquarium as Triggerfish may bite. Male and females may exhibit colour differences.

Humu Picasso Triggerfish are also sometimes known as the Humu Humu Triggerfish or White Banded Triggerfish, are an overall light brown colour with light blue bands a yellow stripe that runs from cheek to cheek, brown and light blue bands on their body and across their head. Humu Picasso Triggerfish can grow up to 30cm in length.
