The Colored Anglers can range in color from a vivid red to a deep orange coloration. Their body can also change color to blend with the surrounding environment over time. They require large amounts of live rock in a 20 gallon or larger aquarium.

When first introduced into the aquarium, live saltwater feeder shrimp should be used to entice this fish to eat. An angler may eat any small inhabitant of the tank (crustacean or fish) that is lured into its mouth with the use of an esca (modified first dorsal spine) that looks like a small, tasty fish. It will accept most meaty meals including feeder fish.

Approximate Purchase Size: Small: 1" to 2" Medium: 2" to 3" Large: 3" to 5"

Customer Testimonials

Vickie Boyles Wichita , KS
Make sure that you feed the Angler on a regular basis, because through our experience of not feeding ours every other day, our Angler ate one of our Dog Face Puffers. They will eat anything that will fit into their mouths.
