This Filefish is found in just about all tropical marine waters. Since it can obtain such a large size, it really should only be housed in the largest of aquariums. Its natural diet consists of algae, seagrass, tunicates and colonial anemones. It can usually be found loitering under float debris or among the seagrass.
