The Scrawled Filefish (Aluterus scriptus) can be found among deep reefs in the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans. The body is mainly an olive or brown coloration with irregular blue lines and black spots, though the true colors depends on it's environment and origin. They reach a maximum size of 3.6 feet (43 inches) and feed on a variety of invertebrates including crustaceans, anemones, and corals, as well as occasional algae. They have a passive temperament and should be kept in very large aquariums with other peaceful fish. They require plenty of space to swim, as well as places to hide when stressed. They do feed on corals and thus are recommended to be housed in a Fish-Only system.
