This beautiful Red Sea fish would love a larger tank with rocks and caves. It has a striking painted appearance with contrasting colors. This particular trigger is “front of the glass friendly” and loves to be fed anything from Mysis shrimp to squid and small silversides. Be careful not to put it with invertebrates, peaceful fish, or fish that have sensitive eyes (such as sharks). The Assasi would make a good addition to a fast-moving aggressive tank.
