Individually crafted - we take pride in our unique collection of underwater photography. Our high quality photo prints featuring pictures of tropical fish are printed individually to order.
Clown Triggerfish perfectly matching the vibrantly coloured corals dappled with splashes of yellow and orange, on which it nibbles. Triggerfish derive their name from their dorsal spine which can be locked into an raised position by an additional, smaller dorsal spine. The raised spine is released by depressing the smaller (trigger) spine. The more aggressive Triggerfish use their raised spine as a warning for fish or other creatures invading their territory. Also, very cleverly, they use their spine to lock themselves into coral crevasses. Adults generally swim about openly by the reef drop-off, only retreating into caves when disturbed.
