Clown Filefish also known as the American Whitespotted Filefish are found from Florida, USA and Bermuda to São Paulo, Brazil and St. Paul's Rocks.

Livestock arrives in and out of stock very regularly, depending upon availability of the item from the source. The more rare and expensive items are often difficult to hold in stock, and can take time to source, so we generally require a deposit to locate and purchase the extremely rare items

The Clown Filefish is a large filefish which bears resemblance with triggerfishes and pufferfishes. The body is mainly brown when adult and unlike the common name suggests, it can be found with or without white spots. Their fins are yellowish transparant. Adult males develop a large orange patch on the anterioir part of the body.

Remember it isn't reef safe though! It's diet consists of sponges, gorgonians and algae, but  they also eat hydroids and corals! It can be agressive to other fishes, especially other Tetraodontoformes, so make sure you pick the other fishes with care!
