Overview

The Fantail Orange Filefish, also known as the Hawaiian Filefish, Fantail Filefish, or Fantail Orange Filefish Hawaii, is brown and silver with an orange, black, and yellow tail fin.

It is rarely aggressive toward other fish except those of its own genus, and is best suited for a 50 gallon or larger aquarium that does not have invertebrates.

The diet should include a variety of shaved shrimp, squid, scallop, mysis shrimp, freeze-dried krill soaked in a vitamin supplement, and frozen marine algae. It should be fed no fewer than three times per day.
