From Left to Right: Clown Trigger (Balistoides
conspicillum), Picasso Trigger (Rhinecanthus
aculeatus), Titan Trigger (Balistoides
viridescens) the largest and most aggressive
Trigger. Below Left: Blue or Red Tooth Triggerfish (Odonus
niger) which really appears black in color
and Right: Striped Triggerfish (Balistapus
undulatus). Almost all Triggers are aggressive
during nesting season. An upright dorsal fin is a sure sign of aggression.
When it comes to the Titan Trigger, you'd better watch out! Bite or hit
it sure hurts!
