Captive Bred Matted Filefish-Acreichthys tomentosus Also known as Aiptasia Eating Filefish

We are really excited to offer captive bred Matted filefish by Biota. These filefish are 100% aquacultured and trained to eat small pellets such as PE pellets, TDO pellets, frozen Mysis shrimp, Calanus, and more. These filefish have interesting mottled coloring and are out and about in the aquarium! They are popular as they are known to eat the pest Aiptasia. 

Size: ~0.75-1 inch. They will reach up to 3 inches with maturity.

We recommend only housing 1-2 individuals of this species in an aquarium. They are peaceful fish and friendly to keep with our captive bred seahorses. These fish are hardy.
