overview
The Flying Gurnard is also known as the Oriental Helmut Gurnard. It is a light-brown color with orange to dark-brown spots. The pectoral fins can be flared out into an impressive display of fan-like wings, with spines extending beyond the flesh at the tips. The tips of the wings are tinged with a blue.

A 180 gallon or larger aquarium with a large unobstructed swimming area and a sandy bottom without much rockwork will provide a suitable environment. Aggressive tank mates should be avoided as well as bottom dwellers.

The diet of the Flying Gurnard consists of small bottom-dwelling fish, black worms, shrimp (mysis or brine), and other meaty foods.

Approximate Purchase Size: Small: 1-1/2" to 2" Medium: 2" to 3" Large: 3" to 4"
