QS – S. littoralis 2017-02-09T09:03:52+00:00

A very pretty fish, they are typically mottled shades of red, with a dark “cheekspot” at the lower edge of the opercula as well as light bars on its lips and chin.  Our specimen is shades of red with pink markings.  This fish is fond of caves and overhangs, and you will often find it upside down on the ceilings of these areas as well as upside down in lush growths of macro algae.  They are bold, yet can be a bit cryptic until they get adjusted.  This is one of the quickest scorps we keep, and our specimen zips out and strikes its food almost before you realize it is coming.
