Clown triggerfish- Balistoides conspicillum is a member of the Triggerfish family Balistidae and is also called a Bigpotted triggerfish. This is one of the more colorful and common triggerfish to see in a saltwater aquarium as they typically are less aggressive than some others triggers and have very distinct coloration even when they are small. These range throughout the Indo-Pacific from the east coast of Africa to throughout the Western Pacific. They're reported to reach a maximum length of 50 cm or about 20 inches. From a fishing standpoint there is currently no world record on file with IGFA for this species so any one that was over 10 inches in length and also over one pound could be submitted as a new world record for this fish. #clown #clowntrigger #clowntriggerfish #balistidae #balistoides #balistoidesconspicullum #triggerfish #trigger #saltwateraquarium #aquarium #fishids #fishid #fishidentification

Canthidermis maculata (Bloch, 1786) Often associated with drifting objects on sea, for both juveniles and adults. Juveniles can be found in coastal region, especially with during early summer, while adults are more likely to be found in offshore water. #triggerfish #canthidermis #canthidermismaculata #reeffish #balistidae

Triggerfish 🔫🐠, specifically titan triggerfish, are ones of my favourite marine animals. They're massive, easy to spot and once you've watched a triggerfish hunt for food on the bottom of the ocean you won't be able to help but chuckle whenever you see another. These bottom dwellers dig out prey by flapping away debris with their fins and sandblasting by squirting water with their mouths 🌬. Those strong-jawed mouths are also used to crush shells, move rocks, break corals or fight with other fish, basically anything in their way 😂. And they do it with such conviction it's hilarious. Don't go disturbing one though, their bites, although not venomous, can result in stitches. Triggerfish are aggressive when guarding their nests or hungry (or just in general) so it's a good idea to never get too close. I guess hanger is a common thing across the animal board. 😈 _______________ℹ️_______________ . 👤 Sunday . 🏠 Manta Dive GILI TRAWANGAN . 📍 Turtle Point . 💸 420.000 IDR/dive _________________________________ #triggerfish #titantriggerfish #balistidae #turtlepoint #mantadivegilit #gilit #gilitrawangan #roamtheplanet #wanderlust #travelbug #travelphotography #underwaterphotography #traveladdict #balilife #explorebali #travelbali #balitravel #indonesia #instabali #bali #balitribe #baliadvisor #diving #scubadiving #balidiving #lombokdiving #underwater #hippoinindonesia #hipposcuba

A new visitor on one of the BRUVs I set with @sharktagging. I believe it to be a gray triggerfish, but as with anything I could be entirely wrong. Even if I am wrong, enjoy the fish! #bruvs #science #research #diversity #fish #identify #triggerfish #finescaletigerfish #beautiful #biscaynebay #miami #rsmas #mps #marinebiologist #fieldwork #seagrassbed #pinfish #balistidae

Pez ballesta o cochino como aquí lo llamamos capturado a slow jigging... Bonita especie y curioso pez que una vez atrapado en el anzuelo es perseguido por más individuos de su especie, digno de ver cuando vamos subiendo uno de estos y vienen unos 3 o 4 detrás de él... también un pez no muy cotizado gastronómicamente y que la mayoría de las veces devolvemos al mar, eso sí son buenos luchadores...🐟🏹🎣🤙🏽🌅 #slowjigging #jigging #jiggingfishing #balistidae #crossbowfish #pezballesta #cochino #fishing #fishingpic #pezcochino #capturaysuelta #catchandrelease #lightjigging

Balistoides viridescens, the Titan Triggerfish or Moustache Triggerfish (watch it again, they seriously do look like they have a lil moustache) is the largest species of triggerfish found on the Great Barrier Reef. With poor visibility I entered this ones territory before spotting her, she darts away to come at me and probably realises I’m not much of a threat after all and goes about her meal. Triggerfish were some of my childhood favourite fish, with starry and clown triggerfish being abundant on the Fijian reefs, their funny little snouts and often bright colours always made them stand out to me. Most species of triggerfish are quite territorial and will use their coral crushing teeth to inflict a painful bite if threatened, sadly I’ve seen plenty of videos of divers deliberately provoking them with fins to get footage of their teeth and defensive behaviour. • #greatbarrierreef #balistoidesviridescens #titantriggerfish #australia #triggerfish #balistidae #territorial #marinelife #underwaterworld #coral #reef #discoverqueensland #explorefnq #tropical #farnorthqueensland #fiji #lifeaquatic #saltnomads #girlswhofreedive #divetosurvive

#太平洋 🌊 #印度洋#南中国海#热带珊瑚礁 间,生长着一种名叫 #鸡鱼 的鱼,亦称 #彘鸣鱼。鸡鱼又叫 #鳞鲀,因为它的背鳍长得奇特,好似手枪上可以扣动的扳机,因此也被渔民叫做“ #板机鱼”。鸡鱼长约30厘米,体色美丽,身上缀满白色斑点,好似鸡一样的花纹,而且吃起来味道与 #鸡肉 很相似,所以也称之 #鸡肉鱼。鸡鱼的脸部十分有趣,似京剧中的丑角,眼睛生在身体背部的中央处略向前,鼻子上镶着一条白条纹,嘴巴长得像猪一样。 #Triggerfish #Balistidae #chickenfish #grunt #seafish #fishstagram #instafish #fishlover 🐟 #fishoftheday

Triggerfish, in the family Balistidae, are easily recognized by their elongated dorsal and anal fins which they move side to side. They also have two dorsal spines, one of which they can unlock when threatened, and "trigger" the spine to shoot the predator. Hence the family name “triggerfish”. 📸 By me @thesharkspot #ocean #oceanconservation #conservation #triggerfish #balistidae #coralreefs #coralreef #molokini #maui #tropicalfish #hawaii #nobluenogreen #marinebiology #underwater #underwaterphotography

I love triggerfish! For fish friday, here is a Picasso triggerfish (also known as a lagoon triggerfish or blackbar trigger) darting around his tank at the Cameron Park Zoo in Waco, TX. @cpzoo #fishfriday #fish #fishofinstagram #triggerfish #picasso #lagoon #blackbar #zoo #aquarium #wildlife #wildlifephotography #cameronparkzoo #waco #tx #texas #reef #tropical #tropicalfish #balistidae #canon #teamcanon #canon7d #7d #lagoontriggerfish #blackbartriggerfish #picassotrigger #picassotriggerfish

¿Alguien con hambre por acá? Hoy tocó laboratorio de ecología de peces marinos y me tocó identificar a esta amiga que resultó ser Canthidermis sufflamen, de la familia Balistidae, mejor conocida como cachúa blanca :D. Como salió bonita para la foto pues quise compartirla por acá para que admiren su belleza, aunque sufrí mucho para no salir corriendo del laboratorio y meterla en el horno ok. #Biology #Ecology #SeaFish #Canthidermis #Canthidermissufflamen #balistidae #Teniaunhambrehorrible #lab #monday #yummy #f4f #l4l
