The Aiptasia eating Filefishs body is a mottled green, brown, and tan colouration. 

They are a shy fish, and rarely aggressive towards other fish except those of its own genus.

The Aiptasia eating Filefish is known to eat Aiptasia pest anemone in the home aquarium, but can also nip at soft and stony corals as well. The diet should include chopped shrimp, squid, scallop, mysis shrimp, freeze-dried krill soaked in a vitamin supplement, and frozen marine algae.

Males are normally large than the females, having fine bristle-like hairs on each side of their body down the caudal peduncle or base of the tail.
