The gaudy coloration of this fish makes it a great addition to a community tank as a juvenile. As it ages it is likely to become belligerent and very aggressive. Keep with other very aggressive fish that are able to defend themselves. It is probably not a good idea to include Lionfish or less aggressive Surgeonfish in an aquarium with this species. May re-aquascape your aquarium to its liking and make a mess of a sandbed due to its constant searching for infaunal invertebrates. May likely nip fins of other fish when it is feeling particularly aggressive.
Will learn to associate you with feedings and can be trained to eat from your hand. Be careful when working in a tank housing this fish as it may bite your hand. It is safest to feed Triggerfish with feeding tongs as hand feeding will often cause accidental biting. Feed a varied diet of meaty crustacean and fish flesh. Many commercially prepared frozen foods have a meat based trigger formula. To maintain body weight of this fish it is recommended to feed 2 or 3 times a day.
