Orange Toadfish - Opsanus beta
That Fish Place
Item # 216817 / Manufacturer Part # F91 0007 0285
The Orange Toadfish is an interesting bottom-dwelling predator for a large aggressive aquarium. They have a flattened body with a very large mouth and are often light to dark orange in color.
These fish have been known to prey on tankmates and will especially eat inverts like shrimp and crabs. Do not keep with small fish or in a reef aquarium!
Toadfish can usually handle less pristine water quality than other fish, but plenty of filtration should still be provided to make up for their messy eating habits.
