The Pinnatus Batfish is commonly referred to as the Dusky Batfish or Red-Faced Batfish. With its darkish brown colored body with orange stripe as outline, it makes a captivating addition to the home aquarium. The Pinnatus Batfish is very sensitive fish and acclimatized very slowly in the tank. We recommend you to maintain pristine water quality in the tank. The Pinnatus Batfish grows rapidly and its coloration disappears as it grows. Juveniles are mostly found singly or in small groups. The Pinnatus Batfish grows up to 18 inches and need a tank not less than 200 gallon when an adult. It is hardy and moderate to care, thus it is recommended to fish keepers with large aquariums. The Pinnatus Batfish thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit and pH of 8.1-8.4. Since the Pinnatus Batfish eats small fish and invertebrates as well as anemones and corals, it is not considered safe for reef tanks. The Pinnatus Batfish prefers brightly lit aquarium with high water quality and stable water parameters. The Pinnatus Batfish is suitable for ?fish-only? aquarium instead for reef aquariums. The Pinnatus Batfish is very difficult to maintain and need to be cared only by an expert aquarist.
