Description


General: The Midnight Triggerfish (Odonus niger) naturally occupy the the Red Sea, as well as reefs surrounding Japan, Fiji, and the Great Barrier Reef. The Midnight Trigger will reach a length of ten inches, is not considered to be reef safe, and should be in a minimum tank size of 175 gallons. The Midnight Trigger is typically an aggressive fish species. They should be one of the final fish to enter the aquarium, as this will allow for the others to have already selected their territories.

Aquarium Diet (Carnivore): The Midnight Trigger (Odonus niger) primarily consume Krill, Squid, Clams, Urchins, and algae.
