The Humu Picasso Triggerfish, also known as the Humuhumu
Triggerfish or Picasso Triggerfish, has a wacky, painted appearance. It has a
tan body with gradient dark bands, and vibrant blue and black stripes on the
top of the head, with a yellow stripe from cheek to cheek and deeply set-back eyes.
A 180 gallon or larger aquarium with rocks and caves
provides a good habitat. It will rearrange the landscaping and rocks as it
wanders in and out of the caves. It vocalizes using a "grunting"
sound. The Humu Picasso Triggerfish makes a great conversation piece.
The Humu Picasso Triggerfish needs a varied diet of meaty
foods including; squid, krill, clams, small fish and hard shelled shrimp to
help wear down their ever growing teeth.
