Say hello, to my little friend :)

Finally got lucky with a very rare, juvenile sargassum trigger. I've been waiting extremely long to get one of these guys.

He's about 2 inches long and has been eating like a champ. He was very shy as it look about 2 weeks for him to come out of hiding to show is awesome personality. Still has not developed the red tail that are unique to sargassum triggers. It will be fun to watch this guy grow!

Here are a few pics...

Special thanks to Red at The Coral Reef Shop for locating this guy for me and holding him until I could pick him up.

Sweet. Never seen that young of a sargassum trigger before.

Also +1 to the Coral Reef Shop and Red! He knows a lot about Triggerfish.

Pretty cute! What made you look for a juvenile?

Yes- it is the smallest I have seen too and Red knows his stuff and has great connections for livestock.

Tiny triggers are adorable. Nice find.

Thanks

I wasn't really looking for a juvenile- I just wanted a smaller sized sargassum. When this became available, I had to jump on it.

An update, had this little guy as a juvenile since June, he's easily doubled in size and has started to get some red colouring in the tip of his tail.I think he likes it around here
