QS – S. brasiliensis 2017-02-09T09:03:52-08:00

Although most scorps can be just about any color based on their habitat, this species is generally mottled shades of reds and browns with white highlights, and are quite handsome fish.  S. brasiliensis is probably the most common scorpionfish available to the hobbyist, and certainly one of the easiest to care for.  It is very hardy and easily fed, as most specimens accept dead food readily, both from a feeding stick or the water column.  Although many scorpionfish are cryptic or simply “sit there looking like a rock” this species is quite “personable” and will soon recognize its keeper, looking for a handout.
