The Pinktail Triggerfish has a handsome emerald-green body and a bright pink tail. Yellow accents the body at the face and pectoral fins with darker flecks on the scales.
A 180 gallon or larger aquarium with rocks and caves provides a good environment. With caution, it can be housed in a reef aquarium, but will eat any crustacean and small fish.
The Pinktail Triggerfish needs a varied diet of meaty foods including; squid, krill, clams, small fish and hard shelled shrimp to help wear down their ever growing teeth.
