With its beautiful colored body, the Six Lined Soapfish makes a captivating addition to any tank. The Six Lined Soapfish is aggressive fish and should be kept with other large fish. With its unique pattern and design, it makes a beautiful addition to any aquarium. The Six Lined Soapfish is carnivore and its diet should include all kinds of meaty foods such as krill, shrimp, small fish (guppies, goldfish, etc), squid, clams and shrimp. It usually hides beneath ledges and small caves during the day while foraging at night, so it is necessary to add plenty of rocks and hiding places in the aquarium. The Six Lined Soapfish has toxin-producing glands that may harm other fishes present in the tank. This toxin, called grammistin, is used to dissuade predators and is given off when the fish is frightened or annoyed. Be sure not to add the shipping water to the aquarium. The Six Lined Soapfish thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit ad pH of 8.1-8.4. It should be kept singly or in true mated pairs. The Six Lined Soapfish grows up to 12 inches and should be kept in a tank not less than 60 gallons. It will eat ornamental crustaceans and small fish that fit to its mouth, so it should not be kept in a reef tank.
