The Triggerfish

Triggerfishes are about 40 species of often brightly colored fishes of the family Balistidae. Often marked by lines and spots, they inhabit tropical and subtropical oceans throughout the world, with the greatest species richness in the Indo-Pacific. While several species from this family are popular in the marine aquarium trade, they are often notoriously ill-tempered.

Aquarium Service Plans

Tailored To Your Specific Needs

We offer Aquarium Service plans throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex tailored to your specific needs. Weekly service visits will ensure that your aquarium will always look at its best while only requiring you to feed the fish. Less intensive service is available if you are interested in being more involved in the care of your aquarium.
