A nocturnal fish, this little scorp is a bit more reclusive, preferring to lie partially buried in the substrate during the day, becoming more active under dim lighting. Its natural diet is small fish and shrimp, and these should be offered at first, although this fish also tends to train fairly well to frozen fare. Their small size makes them perfect for the “aggressive” smaller aquarium, and there should be a suitable substrate (no larger than #3 grade aragonite) and a few pieces of rubble rock to hide amongst in “open” areas of the aquarium. This species is not very common in the aquarium trade, but is occasionally available.
