Description

Melichthys Vidua

  • Care Level: Easy
  • Temperament: Aggressive
  • Reef Compatible: With Caution
  • Diet: Carnivore
  • Max. Size: 35cm
  • Origin: Indo Pacific

Melichthys 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. Triggerfish are carnivores feeding on small fish, starfish, crabs, shrimp, snails and urchins. They are capable of breaking off the spines of urchins and blowing water to turnover urchins attacking the underside. They are hardy, beautiful and not quite as aggressive as other Triggerfish. A diet of meaty based foods should be provided. May loose coloration if not adequately fed. Melichthys Triggerfish can be kept with larger fish that are not easily harrassed.

Pinktail Triggerfish are also sometimes known as the Whitetailed Triggerfish, are generally an olive brown colour with black trimmed white dorsal and anal fins, yellow pectoral fins and a light pink tail. Pinktail Triggerfish can grow up to 35cm in length.

We recommend a minimum aquarium size of 600L or larger for this species.

Due to variations within species and age of fish, your item may not look identical to the image provided.
