The trumpetfish is a solitary, stalking predator.  Using stealth, it gains a position close to its prey and, attacking with a short darting movement, sucks up the victim with a sudden expansion of the tubular snout.  A nūnū sometimes accompanies schools of grazing surgeonfishes or uses the body of a large parrotfish as cover so that it can prey on small organisms driven from cover as the herbivores feed on seaweeds. They can reach up to 3 feet in size will eat small fish.
