Gold Heart Triggerfish

(Balistes punctatus)

Native to the Eastern Atlantic Ocean, especially near Ghana.  This fish grows to 2 feet give or take.  A great show fish for most aggressive aquariums with it’s bold spotted pattern with yellow highlights. It’s best not paired with any other members of it’s genus.  Essential we find it to be Western Africa’s answer to a Queen Trigger with about three fourth’s the attitude.  We find them to be very hardy if offered a wide array of meaty foods.
