Tiera Batfish (aka Longfin Batfish)

Also known as the Longfin Batfish, this impressive fish can grow up to titanic proportions, measuring 24 inches from top to bottom. Needing plenty of room for swimming, the Tiera Batfish is not appropriate for reefs as it will eat ornamental invertebrates, including, but not limited to shrimp, corals, anemones, and crabs. Does well in a community fish-only tank; aggressive fish such as Puffers and Triggers will pick at its large dorsal and anal fin. The Tiera Batfish can also learn to feed from the owner's fingers.
