The Shaggy Anglerfish (Antennarius hispidus), also known as the Hispid Frogfish, can be found among the reefs and lagoons of the Indo-Pacific Ocean. Their colors may range from beige, yellow, orange and red. Their body is adorned with small tassels that give it the appearance of algae or seaweed. They are ambush predators, motionlessly hiding in plain site, waiting for small fish or crustaceans to approach. This being said, they should not be housed with small reef fish or prized crustaceans. They do best in aquariums with plenty of rocks or coral to hide among. They may require live food at first, though many can be trained to eat frozen food in time.
