Matted Filefish

Also known as a Seagrass Filefish, Matted Leatherjacket, Bristletail Leatherjacket, Sagoksok (Philippines), Fuchidorikawahagi (Japan), or Bristletail Filefish.

The shallow reefs and rubble zones provide safety for the Matted Filefish in the wild. This fish can commonly be found around seagrass. Although this species does eat pesky Aiptasia Anemones, it will also nip at corals and clams. The Matted Filefish is a shy and non aggressive fish that will only show aggression towards inverts and conspecifics.
