Husbandry

Randall & Kuiter, 2007

Very nice fish feeding made no problems and it seems to be a very alert fish.
Unfortunately very expensive.
Wetmorella live in dark caves . They shouldn't be kept with big fish, as then, you won't see them very often.
Very good for a mixed tank, but with no big and fast swimming fish.
