The Frogfishes or Anglers, Family Antennariidae.Species identifications can be trying, with much confusing overlapping of physical traits, color, and patterns; luckily all these globose animals’ care is similar. Providing cover for perching and cryptic matching is desirable and one constant in their husbandry: they will gladly inhale any/all other tankmates small enough to get into their capacious maws. Yes, they can ingest fishes actually longer than themselves. Typically a peaceful, non-aggressive fish. The colored angler has ranges of coloration from white, yellow, brown, green, black or the rarer red. We are unable to guarantee color choices. The Angler fish should not be housed in a community type aquarium or an aquarium that houses aggressive fish, as either it may eat fish up to its own size or more aggressive species of fish will pose harm to it. It is highly recommended then to place this fish in a tank with other peaceful predators or in its own tank.
