  • Description
  • The Whitespotted Pygmy Filefish is a tiny and super cute filefish. Whitespotted Pygmy Filefish have a mostly tan to brown colored body with strong silvery white spots.

    Whitespotted Pygmy Filefish reach a maximum adult size of around 3 inches and need to be kept in tanks that are at least 29 gallons in size. Whitespotted Pygmy Files are very peaceful fish and shouldn't bother most fish, coral or inverts in your tank. Whitespotted Pygmy Filefish might eat some smaller inverts, so please take that into consideration when adding one to a reef tank.

    Since Whitespotted Pygmy Filefish are so peaceful, they shouldn't be kept with large and aggressive fish, and will do best with other peaceful to semi-aggressive small to medium sized fish. Whitespotted Pygmy Filefish will thrive in tanks that have a lot of live rock and marine plants in them. Whitespotted Pygmy Filefish will often want to hide if they feel threatened in the rock and will spend their days looking through the rock for small inverts to eat between feedings.

    Whitespotted Pygmy Filefish are omnivores and require a diet that is rich in both meaty and green foods. Foods like mysis and brine shrimp, high quality frozen foods and high quality flake and pellet foods will keep your Whitespotted Pygmy Filefish healthy and happy.
