Husbandry


Aploactisoma milesii (J. Richardson, 1850)

Aploactisoma milesii, better known as the Southern Velvetfish, is native to the waters around southern and western Australia where it occurs at depths from 3 to 30 m. This species grows to a length of 23 cm.

The Southern Velvetfish lives between rocks and sponges or partially buried in the sand in coastal bays and estuaries of temperate Australia. Aploactisoma milesii has highly variable colour from grey to cream or brown, with purplish mottling. Its camouflage, colouration and body form means it is seen infrequently.
