The Gumdrop Coral Croucher is a tiny scorpionfish perfect for nano tanks. They are peaceful and only the smallest shrimp are at risk of consumption. They may prefer live foods at first, but may eat frozen mysis shrimp after frozen food training. The dorsal spines are venomous, so use caution when handling.
