Hawaiian Black Trigger (aka Black-Finned Triggerfish)

The Hawaiian Black Trigger is also known as the Black-Finned Triggerfish. As with most other Triggerfish, this species will rearrange rocks as well as the substrate. However, unlike other Triggerfish, the Hawaiian Black Trigger will school in the wild. This does not apply in the home aquarium, except in exceptionally large tanks with thousands of gallons of water. It has beak-like teeth that can cause significant injury to hands and fingers, so be aware of the fish's location when maintaining the tank.
