Hi All,

I am little worried about trigger bluejaw it isn't eating 3 days. He is very hidding and shy. I fed it brine shrimp, seaweed, dry ocean plankton and live plankton. How do I get it to eat?

Check it over real good and see if you see any signs of illness.  It may be that way until it gets used to the tank or it may go south on you.  I wouldn't take it out if it doesn't look sick you may stress it out more than it already is.

Blue Jaw Triggers:Will typically hide when first introduced
« Reply #2 on: October 21, 2005, 05:49:38 pm »
Hey Zul i found this at a popular fish web site see what they say about introducing newbie to the tank:

General Notes: The Xanthichthys auromarginatus or Blue Jaw Triggerfish is one of the more reef friendly triggers. Though it will not mess with corals it may act aggressively to other fish as it becomes bolder with age. Will typically hide when first introduced. This species can be kept in small groups of one male with one or more females. It can make a clicking and grunting sound and may spit water. Will eat ornamental shrimp.

Hi again,

Yes, I have a male bluejaw trigger, but no female because they were out of females.

If it is coming out at night then I would't worry too much.  As he gets more comfortable in the tank and finds that there are no predators in the tank he may start coming out during the day.  Happens with a lot of fish.  Remember the last predator they saw was the one that put them in a net!

Good Point Angel! Zul have you been able to get it to come out and eat yet? I know you started this yesterday just hoping this little guy would start getting hungry>

Zul,
    Here is what I know about Blue Jaw triggers.   They are herbevores and often eat algae.    I am wondering if you could intice your Blue Jaw with Cyclopeez or Spectrum?

All of my fish are doing well.  The fins on the firefishes are a little tore up but that will heal in time.  They are very active and the engineer is teamed up with my other one and having a blast burrowing.  I am very happy with them all.
