Titan Triggerfish

The Titan Triggerfish is well named, dwarfing the angelfish behind. The female of this species can be quite agressive to divers when she is guarding her nest. The large upper and lower fins in front of the tail are used for propulsion and they can move surprisingly fast.This shot was taken at Sipadan Island off the NE coast of Sabah.

  1. You can see exactly by the way you caught his fins how he uses them to move along at a fast pace. Amazing markings.
