Trigger ID

Picked up this oddball trig about a week ago and cannot find much for an ID through fishbase. I purchased through wholesaler and the owner said it was shipped as unknown trigger. I really dont think its much, as I only paid $20 for it. This fish is on the small side @ 2-3" and eating well. Pic was in photo box.

My first thought was a filefish over trigger, they are distant cousins. I can not place which filefish though.

Probably Indo but I will check. I always forget to ask that one.

its definatly a trigger, you can tell because in it's "trigger" it more than 2 spines, filefish can only have 2 at most.

the only thing that comes close are some pics i saw of the juvenile golbenback trigger (or blueline (not bluelined) trigger, a deepwater rarity) - but there aren't enough pics of that fish in juvenile stages (re: ANY!) to be found for comparison (at least by me and google...lol). I think a common name for one close picture was the outrigger trigger - but then yours doesn't have the 'outriggers'. dunno.

its impossible to get a juvi goldenback trigger.. so thats out.. lol i dont think one has ever entered the trade. from what i gathered though is even at juvis they have the noticeable goldenback (which yours does not)

could be a hybrid of some kind. Is it stressed? I ask because of the blotches.. is it all blue or does it maintain the orange spots?

very nice either way

Got any updated pictures of the fish when not stressed, or in the tank.

Had to edit a little for brightness cause the 110 gal is disgustingly underlit with a single 12" flourescent.

No idea. It has a dark ring around its mouth like a blue jaw

It has blue eye surrounds like a blue jaw.

What ever it is, feed it plenty since it is small, feed often and by all means, don't let it die.

If I kill a trigger with an appetite like this one you may never see me again on this site. Ill keep the pics coming. All the pics above used a flash and some new ones im taking are without. The color looks even better.

What about the Rough/Spotted Trigger (Canthidermis maculatus), pretty rare, and not a lot of pics on it, but it looks the closest to me? Especially the pics of the juveniles. Red Sea or Cook Islands according to WWM. http://images.google.com/images?svnu...us&btnG=Search

The adults looks like it may become similar, but the juvi's are to far apart. Also the exact origin is officially unknown but the importer tells me it was transhipped out of shrilanka.

if it was transhipped from sri lanka is most likely came from that island or VERY close to it.. Collectors dont stray to far from the island to collect. get some more pics its such a nice little trigger!
