Oriental Sweetlips

The Oriental Sweetlips is one of the larger species within the Marine Aquarium hobby. Growing at a blazing pace, this species is recommended only for larger aquariums due to their adult size upwards of three feet. Strictly a carnivore, the Oriental Sweetlips should not be housed with small crustaceans, snails, or serpent stars due to the fish's propensity to consume them. Eats crustaceans in the day out in the open, and in seagrass beds at night.
