Coral Cats are interesting fish that like to school together in groups, often forming big balls. As they get older they tend to not school as much. They like to hide in caves and will dig out the sand under rocks and stay in there for days at a time. The do get rather large, some getting up to 1 foot. They will spawn in the tank, looking bloated from carrying eggs. The have a poisonous fin on top of their backs so you need to be careful when handling one or putting your hand in the tank.
