Overview

Did you know that this specimen ships from our LiveAquaria® Wisconsin Facility, home of our popular Diver's Den® WYSIWYG Store and our LiveAquaria® Certified Captive Grown Corals (CCGC)? What that means is that you can rest assured knowing this specimen received the highest level of care from our experienced and professional LiveAquaria® staff!.

PLUS, hobbyists that use our LiveAquaria® Professional Reef Salt have the added benefit knowing marine species shipped from our LiveAquaria® Wisconsin Facility share the same water parameters. In other words, if you use our Professional Reef Salt, marine species shipped from our Wisconsin Facility will acclimate and transition to your home aquarium with less stress to set the foundation for longer term success. The Hi-Hat, also known as High-Hat, has a shimmering silvery body marked by dark horizontal stripes and a tall anterior dorsal fin.

It requires a peaceful community in a 70 gallon or larger aquarium with a sandy bottom, and abundant hiding places. It tends to hide during the acclimation process to the new aquarium until it feels secure.

Regular meals consisting of a variety of live items such as black worms and brine shrimp and prepared meaty items should bring it out of hiding. The Hi-Hat will comb the sandy bottom looking for worms, crustaceans, and small fish if it is hungry. It may even eat the occasional fireworm.

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