Aptasia Eating Filefish
“One of the best options for clearing an aquarium of invasive Aiptasia or Glass Anemones is the ORA Aiptasia-Eating Filefish (also known as the Matted Leatherjacket or Bristletail Filefish.) In the wild, the Aiptasia-Eating Filefish can be found in shallow seagrass beds, where its camouflage pattern disguises it from both predators and prey. Naturally occurring in shades of green, tan or brown it can quickly shift its mottled pattern depending on its environment or mood. They reach a maximum size of 3.5 to 4 inches and are peaceful with other fish. Males possess a distinct patch of bristles at the base of the tail, making sex determination quite easy.
Most Aiptasia-Eating Filefish readily consume nuisance Aiptasia, making them a fascinating and beneficial addition to the home aquarium. Fortunately, they are not specialized feeders and Aiptasia anemones are not their sole food source. They will eagerly consume just about any common aquarium fish food.”
Patterns on the filefish will vary from image. They will vary day to day as their patter is influenced by their environment.
