Tank compatibility[edit | edit source]

Can be aggressive and territorial, keep one per tank. Keep with larger fish such as Tangs, and larger Clownfish. Smaller mild-tempered fish are liable to be attacked and bullied by this fish. This fish should not be considered shrimp-safe, it will eat smaller fancy shrimp species.
