Juvenile/Adult – A fish that can get very large, even though small individuals are usually available for sale at LFS. They are known to move around rocks and sand looking for food, mostly invertebrates, and they will also hide in the sand at night. Not a good fish for a reef tank but does well in FO and FOWLR tanks. Can be very aggressive, so you need to be careful with other tank mates.
