Biota Aiptasia Eating Filefish

Acreichthys tomentosus

Biota Captive Bred

Size: 1″-2.5″

Controls Aiptasia Anemones.

This somewhat reserved and mellow fish can be a great addition to tanks with heavy infestations of Aiptasia anemones. Though there are a few reports of the species occasionally targeting corals and small invertebrates, it is regarded as a very effective means of eliminating certain pest anemones. Originally from Indonesia, these captive bred specimens are exceptionally hardy, healthy, peaceful. Unlike many other members of their family, they reach a modest adult size of usually not much greater than a few inches. Its blotchy color pattern can quickly change with its mood.
