overviewThe Sea Goblin is a blend of browns and reds, has a large "wing span," and numerous sharp dorsal spines which are venomous.
The Sea Goblin also has legs, and spends time hiding on the bottom of a 50 gallon or larger aquarium with a sand bed. It will spend a good part of the day walking across the sand bed in search of food. These fascinating fishes will also bury themselves in the sand with only thier eyes and face exposed in an effort to hunt prey that may pass by. Sea Goblins are peaceful but will eat anything motile that it can fit in its mouth such as small fishes or crustaceans.
Their venomous spines are used solely for defensive purposes, and caution should be used when cleaning the aquarium, to avoid an accidental sting.
When first introduced into the aquarium, live saltwater feeder shrimp should be used to entice this fish to eat. The diet consists of live feeder fish, glass shrimp, and a variety of other meaty foods.
