This fish is very cute to watch move around. With it’s large head in relation to it’s body, it mimics the characteristics of a baby animal. It’s variable in color and will readily change to suit its environment. They can be found in shallow reefs, but are often in the deep waters, where they are removed from the ocean as a bycatch of trawling.

They spend their day hunkered deep in the sand, waiting for food. They will also bounce across the substrate to take the food you offer, once converted.

Keep in mind they require a coldwater tank and make great mates for fish, such as the blackfoot Lionfish and the Fortescue Waspfish.
