Yellow-Margin Triggerfish (Pseudobalistes flavimarginatus) are a less-commonly-sighted species of Triggerfish found from The Red Sea to Japan, across the Indo-West-Pacific region. They are less colourful and less common than the Tritan Triggerfish, but can be equally aggressive during the breeding season.
