The Goldenback trigger native from the the Angela Islands eastward to the Galapagos, and even north to south Japan. This fish shows some amazing color of being bicolored with a goldish-brown top, silverish-white bottom, split by a dark orange line to the tail. Beautiful colored horizontal lines on the face going towards the gills, and an impressive reddish-orange outline on the tail. This fish can be aggressive at times so be cautious with tank mates. The Goldenback trigger is also not recommended in a reef as they can eat shrimp, snails, hermits, urchins, and other inverts. Make sure to feed plenty of meaty foods and provide a good amount of rockwork for this fish to swim through and hide.
