The Orbiculate Batfish, Platax orbicularis, will display a dramatic change in appearance while in different stages of life. As a juvenile it displays a silvery body with three vertical black lines while as an adult the color combination changes to a tan/brown body. They are hardy fish that are very peaceful and can be kept singly, or in larger tanks as a pair, or a small school and should also be kept with other larger peaceful fish.

They are not reef safe however since they will consume smaller fish, invertebrates, corals and anemones present in the tank. Diet should include a variety of live feeder marine fish and feeder shrimp and frozen chopped meaty preparations like crab, krill, squid, and shrimp 2-3 times daily.
