The Spotted Sweetlips, Plectorhinchus chaetodonoides, also known as the Clown Sweetlips and Harlequin Sweetlips, changes its body colors at is matures. As a juvenile it features a brown body with large white dots and as it matures it develops a black body with white dots. The Spotted Sweetlips should be cared for by an experienced aquarist. They can grow very large and should be housed in large tanks with plenty of live rock hiding places and open swimming space. They will take a carnivorous diet consisting initially of live feeder shrimp to get them acclimatized to eating. The Spotted Sweetlips may predate on small inverts so it is reef safe with caution.

Our sweetlips came in wonderfully, however I have a feeling it got to close to the LTA one night, as it was gone the next day no body no fish. Will re-order, it was very beautiful.

Always thought this was a great fish when you get them a bit on the small side. The specimen that I received is eating and doing it's clownfish like dance.
