A very aggressive trigger that gets more aggressive as it gets larger. There seems to be two type of color patterns that show up at LFS: one has more gold and another that has more purple and shows a lot more color. As the trigger gets larger it looses its juvenile colors and the gold and purple lines become more curved and the fish gets darker in color. Gets to 14 to 20 inches and becomes very aggressive. This is a fish that does well in large FO or FOWLR tanks with very aggressive tank mates. House of Fins
