This is a cool alternative to a Crosshatch Trigger. Blue Jaw Triggers are relatively peaceful and moderately reef-safe. Though many end up in reef aquaria, some caution should be taken as they may eat mobile invertebrates when they grow large. Feeding krill & hard-shelled shrimp will help whittle down their ever-growing teeth. This fish has a unique ability to occasionally ‘grunt’, which is extremely cool!
