The Yellow Angler, also referred to as the Warty Frogfish or Wartskin Frogfish, looks more like a rock or piece of coral than a fish. The Yellow Angler's color can change within captivity, and may vary widely, from browns to reds, yellows to purples and white. It also has the chameleonic ability of changing color to blend with its surroundings.

A good reef dweller, the Yellow Angler enjoys perching on coral ledges and requires a tank of at least 20 gallons. These Anglers are a hardy aquarium member but not recommended for beginners.

The Yellow Angler feeds by ambush, lying in wait for an unsuspecting fish or crustacean to go by, and then lunging forward, grabbing and swallowing the victim whole. The Yellow Angler has been known to devour fish nearly equal to its own size.

When first introduced into the aquarium, live saltwater feeder shrimp should be used to entice this fish to eat. The Yellow Angler should be given feeder fish and shrimp, but do not overfeed as they may stop eating.
