    Maj 30 to 35 cm on average. Quite easy too keep , the reason for being expensive is their limited distribution and the fact that they inhabit deeper waters making catching more difficult

    they can reach 25cm in the home aquaria, so they need a big tank. they are highly sought after fish and difficult to come by in most countries.

    they are difficult to keep by trigger standards but not that difficult regarding other fish. most triggers are rather hardy though.

    thats a nice size they grow to,so a 3m tank should be the minimum requirmnt for them.
    do they breed easily if kept in the pair?
    i lurve the way triggers look,i want one,but not these in questions(finance minister will kill me)

    i would say for an adult pair anything smaller than 3m and 2000L would be unfit. i think they actually spawn rather regularly in home aquariums, but raising the fry is nearly impossible.

    i would also love a pair...but oh oh oh the price!:(

    I think if you tell Sims what you want he will find it for you, I don't think he is bringing anything in till new year though.
