The Red Sea Trigger has a wacky, painted appearance. It has a tan body with gradient dark bands running through the eye area and by the base of the tail. Also, there are vibrant blue and black stripes on the top of the head, with a yellow stripe from cheek to cheek and highly contrasting yellow eyes.
They can vocalizes using a "grunting" sound.
An aquarium with rocks and caves provides a good habitat for the Red Sea Triggerfish, however, it will tend to rearrange the landscaping and rocks.
The Red Sea 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.
