Probably depends on the material of the dome and what it tastes like.....

Hi Vkids,

 

Triggerfish sure can do some damage, if that is made by a triggerfish or something else entirely is hard to say, but it wouldn't surprise me if a big Titan Trigger could have done that to a plastic dome. They are evil animals! ;)

One more vote for glass domes:)

 

Or Triggerfish with dental problems?

I don't know how those fish could get a bite on the dome. But I've watched them feeding on coral in French Polynesia, and I can tell you that those teeth are no joke. They could easy take a thumb off - easily. I watched one eating a hard coral head. He'd just bite off chunks of hard coral bigger around than my thumb, chew them up and spit them out.

 

Also, the divemaster in Moorea warned us that it was mating time and the males would get territorial, possibly attacking us. He backed up quickly when one began to approach him.
