The Yellow-spotted triggerfish lives in the reef-associated, marine, depth range 30 - 50 m environment.

The Yellow-spotted Triggerfish or Blue-and-Gold Triggerfish is another beautiful triggerfish! This is a juvenile specimen since the caudal fin is more rounded. The tailfin becomes emarginate as the fish matures. Adults will have filaments at the top and the bottom of the caudal fin. More
