WhyReef - Lifestyle

The clown triggerfish is a loner, except when it reproduces. Then you can find one male guarding 2 to 5 females. The females make the nests for the eggs, but then leave the males to protect the eggs until they hatch. The males will even attack divers if they come to close to the eggs.
