The Goldenback Triggerfish, also known as the Outrigger Triggerfish(Xanthicthys caeruleolineatus) is one of the rarest Triggerfish in the trade, and also ranks high on the list for some of the biggest Triggers. This fish is rarely seen in juvenile sizes, with most species starting at around 6-8”. The Goldenback Triggerfish gets its name from its beautiful golden back, and can reach sizes up to 16”.  This fish is sourced from the Philippines and tends to be more reef safe than most Triggerfish.
