Taenianotus triacanthus

The color of the Leaf Fish, also known as the Leaf Scorpionfish, or Paper Fish, varies between red, yellow, brown, or blue.

A 30 gallon or larger aquarium with live rock is suitable for this fish. It uses the live rock for hiding as well as for perching while looking for food. Tank mates should be passive fish including other Leaf Fish. It has poison glands attached to the dorsal, anal, and pelvic spines.

This specimen is eating well on frozen food. Being an ambush hunter, it needs slow, calm tankmates that will not out-compete it for food.
