White Tip Half Moon Triggerfish (Sufflamen chrysopterus)
The Whitetail Triggerfish, otherwise known as the White Tip Triggerfish, are blackish-brown in body with blue underbellies and white tipped caudal fins. They are highlighted with yellow on the upper halves of their bodies and their dorsal fins.
It is best to house Whitetails in 125 gallon tanks or larger with caves and live rocks to stimulate a natural habitat. These fish tend to rearrange their surroundings to their liking and are not reef compatible.
The diet of the Whitetail Triggerfish should include: krill, squid, clams, small fish, and hard shelled shrimp to soften their teeth.
