Fish Identification: Black Triggerfish
Black triggerfish are also known as black durgon, but should not be confused with their close relatives the Indian Triggerfish and the Black-finned Triggerfish.
They have the common triggerfish body shape: oval with soft dorsal and anal fins of equal size. Both fins are white at the base, while the rest of the black triggerfish appears black. I say appears, because taken out of water and put under light, the fish is colored dark blue / blue-green.
Geography and habitat
Black triggerfish live in tropical waters across the entire globe. They are found in practically all depths.
The fish is also usually solitary.
