Meet the uber rare Linespot Triggerfish

By Leonard Ho - Posted
Calling all rare fish aficionados: The Linespot Triggerfish, Xanthichthys lineopunctatu, is one of the rarest reef fish in the world. Absolutely Fish (New Jersey, USA) shares with us images and video of not one but a BONDED PAIR of X. lineopuntatu they just received.

It's been over a decade since I've last visited Absolutely Fish; it is over 3,000 miles away from my home state California, after all.  A holy grail fish is a compelling reason to make the trip.

I'm a passionate aquarist of over 30 years, a coral reef lover, and the blog editor for Advanced Aquarist. While aquarium gadgets interest me, it's really livestock (especially fish), artistry of aquariums, and "method behind the madness" processes that captivate my attention.
