The "Albino" Trigger

By Leonard Ho - Posted Sep 24, 2013 09:00 AM
As far as aberrant pigmentation in marine fish go, this trigger recently up for sale by is one of the more unique specimens we've come across. While aberrant tangs and angelfish are rare, we see a few examples every year. But triggers? Not so much.

The "Albino" Trigger. What species am I?

This specimen is actually not a true albino but rather leucistic. may be unaware or decided "Leucistic Trigger" simply doesn't have the same marketable ring.  Regardless, it's one of the most uniquely (un)pigmented fish we've seen.  The question rare fish lovers will have to ask thsemelves is: Is its uniqueness  worth $7999 USD?
