Natural diet consists mainly of zooplankton and small crustaceans. They should be housed in aquariums with a sandbed of at least two inches in depth. Requires a meaty diet, i.e., enriched brine shrimp, mysis, finely chopped fish or shrimp flesh, and other various frozen carnivore foods, with one or two feedings per day. They should not be housed in aquariums with aggressive fishes such as groupers, dottybacks, triggerfishes or aggressive angelfishes. Rarely seen in the trade.
