Black Triggerfish

Melichthys niger

Black triggerfish are a schooling predatory fish. When seen underwater, they are normally completely black, rimmed with an iridescent blue border line along the tail fins. Sometimes they appear a blue-purple color with orange cheeks and wavy stripes, revealing a beautiful pattern that hides beneath the black most of the time.
