  • Description
  • The Waspfish is a stunning and truly unique fish. Waspfish can be found in various colors from browns to oranges depending on where they are found. Waspfish have long fan like fins and venomous spines.

    Waspfish reach a maximum adult size of around 5 inches and need to be kept in tanks that are at least 55 gallons in size. Waspfish are semi-aggressive fish and shouldn't bother too many fish. Smaller fish and inverts will be targets for Waspfish though. For this reason it is not advised to add a Waspfish to your reef tank.

    Waspfish do best when kept in tanks that have lots of live rock, macro algae and marine plants in them. Waspfish are ambush predators and like having rock and plants to hide amongst. Waspfish do have venomous spines and if stung, please seek medical help if needed. Also make sure you are always extra careful when handling a Waspfish or working in a tank with one in it.

    Waspfish are carnivores and require a diet that is rich in meaty foods. Foods like mysis and brine shrimp, high quality meaty frozen foods and small chunks of fresh seafood should keep your Waspfish healthy and happy. Waspfish might require live feeder shrimp to get use to eating in captivity as well.
