When it comes to aggression, Red-Toothed Triggers don't top the list in the trigger family, but they could still bully smaller and/or timid fish. Aggression can be amplified in smaller tanks. Since they like to pick on smaller things and like to tip other things like corals while exploring, any trigger is not considered reef safe, though this specific trigger is a planktivore, and thus much less likely to engage in this behavior. They will grow to be a pretty large size of 12"and will need ample swimming space. Full grown adults of this trigger will need around 180 gallons; however, you can get away with smaller aquariums when they are juveniles. Their color is known to change from day to day, but will typically stay in shades of purple, blue and green. The fins are outlined in a neon blue that gives a very striking color. Their name gives away the color of their sharp teeth.

ACCLIMATION: Avoid exposing new aquatic life to bright lights after opening the box. Turn off aquarium lights prior to floating aquatic life. Allow the sealed bag with your new fish to float in your aquarium for at least 15 minutes (but no longer than one hour) to ensure the water in the bag matches the temperature in your aquarium. A bacteria booster addition can assist with the addition of new aquatic life. Petco offers free water testing in store to determine if your water is safe for the addition of new aquatic life. DIET: A well-balanced diet consists of a variety of flakes, pellets, freeze-dried and frozen foods, depending on the species. FEEDING: Feed sparingly and no more than fish can eat in 1-2 minutes. Overfeeding can quickly foul the water, especially in smaller aquariums.
