Shauming Lo Anybody knows how it look when it is an adult ?

Benjamin Vallejo Jr It's Pseudobalistes fuscus it will look like this http://www.fishbase.org/summary/Pseudobalistes-fuscus.html

Shauming Lo Thanks Benjamin Vallejo Jr.

Arne Kuilman That's an insane juvenile!

Blogie Robillo Can anyone confirm if this is the Blue Triggerfish (Pseudobalistes fuscus)? Spotted it at a depth of about 15m. It measured around 10cm long.

Rog Carraway It is Juvenile

Rog Carraway blue triggerfish.(my reply is in two posts :)

Benjamin Vallejo Jr It is Pseudobalistes fuscus. A juvenile much sought in the aquarium trade. They do extremely well in the aquarium until the time they demolish your aquarium. I would suggest they are left in the sea.

Blogie Robillo Thanks Rog and Benjamin! Yes, they should be kept in the sea.

Carl-Johan Nilsson Everything should be kept in the sea. Esp us;)

Blogie Robillo Carl-Johan - True that! (^^^)
