Xanthichthys auromarginatus. The male in this species has a blue patch that extends from the mouth to the gills, a somewhat tannish body having pale dots, and the light grey dorsal, anal, and tail fin edged in yellow. Females lack the blue throat area and are often referred to as the Gilded Triggerfish. This is one of the smallest and most mild-mannered in the triggerfish family, if not the best, making it a good choice for community-style reef or fish-only aquariums.
