Description


The Two-line Monocle Bream is white with black edges and yellow dorsal fin. This fish is very hardy, and will make a wonderful addition to the fish-only aquarium. These fish are very interesting to watch in the aquarium due to their inquisitive behavior. Scolopsis are commonly called Breams and are a close relative to both Grunts or Sweetlips and Drums.

Scolopsis are peaceful sand-stirring fish that will take in mouthfuls of sand in order to find foods such as crustaceans and worms. Adapting well to most aquariums, these fish make the perfect addition for the novice or expert alike.

A varied diet of meaty foods is ideal for Scolopsis. In the aquarium, it should be fed a varied diet of mysis shrimp, vitamin-enriched brine shrimp, frozen preparations and other meaty items.
