Aiptasia Eating Filefish (Acreichthys tomentosus)


Native to the seas surrounding Indonesia, the Aiptasia Eating Filefish (Acreichthys tomentosus), also known as the Matted Leatherjacket, Tomentosus Filefish, Bristletail Filefish, or Matted Filefish, is a fantastic solution for the pest anemone aiptasia! Only aggressive towards members of the same genus, the Aiptasia Eating Filefish will do well with other peaceful tankmates. Beware, they can nip at invertebrates and soft corals and will do best in a fish-only saltwater tank.
