Other Common Names
Humuhumu Triggerfish, Picasso Triggerfish, Humuhumunukunukuapuaa
The Humu Triggerfish, also known as the Picasso Triggerfish, is unusually colored and equally as interesting in appearance. Lesser aggressive than the Queen, Undulated, or Clown Triggerfish, the Humu can learn to live peacefully with many large non-aggressive fish. It has been reported that the Humu Triggerfish has lived peacefully with smaller pufferfish, and larger psuedochromis, though much of whether this happens is based on the individual personality of the fish. The Humu Triggerfish is often referred to as the closest thing to a dog in the fish world. If you are looking for a fish with a LOT of personality, the Humu Triggerfish is the one you want.
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.
