The Teira Batfish, Platax teira, will display a change in appearance while in different stages of life. As a juvenile will have longer top and bottom fins displaying vertical black and white lines with yellow lower fins while as an adult the same coloration will occur but the fins will appear much shorter as the body grows larger. 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.
