The Orange-Spotted Filefish (Cantherhines pullus) can be found among shallow lagoons and reefs in the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean. They have a blackish blue body with horizontal yellow stripes that converge to a vibrant yellow caudal fin, all of which is covered by small orange spots. They frequently swim above the seabed of rocky reefs where they hide among gorgonians and other tall coral. They feed on a variety of foods including algae, invertebrates and corals. Juveniles are frequently found among floating seaweed patches at the surface where they hide from predators and feed on small crustaceans. They require a large tank with plenty of hiding spaces - They are known to nip at soft corals and SPS polyps, so they are best housed in a FOWLR aquarium.
