That’s awesome, but is that an orange spot filefish? How will you feed it? It eats mainly acropora polyps. Such a pretty fish.
Yes, That is Long-nose filefish or Orangespotted filefish. Now i try to feed with fish roe , Zoo plankton and coralific delite.
I saw it eat but not much.

I wish you luck. In the wild they eat acropora coral, so it may be difficult for you to try and feed it normal fish food.

One person said they had success smearing maastic onto cheap acropora frags to switch the fish over to other foods.
Never heard how it went 6 months later.
They are beautiful fish. But like morish idol, very few live 6 months.
A good "leave in the ocean fish".
