Mottled Soapfish - Rypticus bicolor/nigripinnis
These two species are almost identical and have very minute differences in color and body profile. Soapfish are predators on very small fish and inverts. In the aquarium, they will usually accept meaty frozen or prepared foods. Though they stay fairly small, avoid keeping with very tiny fish or inverts that may be eaten.
