Live Fishes

Orange-striped Triggerfish

The Orange-lined Triggerfish, Orange-striped Triggerfish or Undulated Triggerfish (Balistapus undulatus)is a triggerfish of the tropical Indo-Pacific area. It is the only member of the genus Balistapus. They reach a maximum size of about 30 cm. They feed on coral, crabs and invertebrates. They are found up to around 50 m deep in tropical waters. Balistapus undulatus is a hardy member of a saltwater aquarium. It however has a reputation as one of the meanest fish in the aquarium trade. Sometimes young individuals will accept tank-mates but an owner should expect this fish to kill most fish and invertebrates that share its aquarium. Serious consideration should therefore be made for keeping this fish alone. The minimum tank size to keep a small fish alone is 50 gallons. It is a slow growing fish, but as it gets older it will likely need a larger aquarium.

red lion fish

The red lion fish (Pterois volitans) is a venomous coral reef fish from the Indian and western Pacific Oceans. The red lionfish is also found off the east coast of the United States, and was likely first introduced off the Florida coast in the early to mid-1990s. Red lionfish have distinctive red, maroon, or brown and white stripes; fleshy tentacles above the eyes and below the mouth; fan-like pectoral fin; and long separated dorsal spinesAdults can grow as large as 17 inches (43 cm), while juveniles may be as small as an inch or less.

Foxface Rabbit fish

The Foxface Rabbitfish (Siganus vulpinus) is a popular saltwater aquarium fish. It belongs to the rabbitfish family (Siganidae) and is sometimes still placed in the obsolete genus Lo. Other common names are "foxface" but these properly refer to any of the rabbit fish species once separated in Lo, e.g. the closely related] Bicolored Foxface (S. uspi). The Foxface Rabbit fish lives throughout the western Pacific, often inhabiting coral reefsThe Blotched Foxface (S. unimaculatus) differs from S. vulpinus in possessing a large black spot below the aft dorsal fin. It is sympatric and not phylogenetically distinct, and though these two might be recently-evolved species, they are more likely just color morphs and ought to be united under the scientific name S. vulpinus.

Flame angel fish

The flame angel, Centropyge loricula, is a marine angelfish of the family Pomacanthidae found in tropical waters of the Pacific Ocean. In captivity, this species feeds on a variety of food including live brine shrimp, frozen meaty foods as well as spirulina, seaweed sheets and pellets. Easy to feed.

The Flame Angel is known to be shy upon introduction to an established aquarium (especially smaller specimens) but within a week will gain confidence and is then constantly seen grazing around live rock during the day. Will fight with other fish if challenged for space or kept with similar species (dwarf angels) in a small tank. Some texts advise that this should be a final addition to a tan

Blue ring angel fish

It is highly sought after and prized member of the Pomacanthus genus, composed of large marine angelfish. Bluering angelfish can reach up to 12 inches in the wild and often obtain lengths near that in captivity.In the aquarium bluering angelfish are algae grazers but consume fish and coral flesh as well. They are known to eat shrimps and nibble on both LPS and SPS corals. Overall most seasoned reef aquarists do not recommend keeping this species in a reef aquarium due to these habits.

Emperor angel fish
