A beautiful fish, that is easy to care for! So striking with its bold yellow and electric blue trim. A constant swimmer, that will take pellets or flakes along with frozen foods. Can be a little territorial if in a crowded or small tank. Take caution with corals, as he ate/killed my frogspawn coral. He is fine with leathers and polyps. He tries to nip at emerald crabs, but they defend themselves easily. Overall, an excellent fish, that I will always have in my tank!
