This incredible fish hails from Hawaii, and frankly, we haven't ever seen anything like it! This fish has us a little stumped, as the throat definitely tells us that it is a male Xanthichthys auromarginatus (Bluethroat Triggerfish). However, the tail is reminiscent of a Xanthichthys mento female (Crosshatch Triggerfish).
Either way, it's a beautiful fish and we're extremely excited to show it off!
