The Fortescue Waspfish has a cream to brown body with dark irregular bars on the head and along the sides.

The Fortescue Waspfish should be housed in an aquarium with numerous hiding places. It will hide while acclimating to its new home, but then is generally found out in the open. It may eat smaller fish, shrimp, and other crustaceans in the tank.

They have venomous dorsal spines often inflict a painful sting.

When first introduced into the aquarium, live feeder shrimp should be used to entice this fish to eat. Its diet should include meaty foods such as live shrimp, fish, and occasionally crustacean flesh. Once fully settled into the aquarium, with some diligence and patience, Fortescue Waspfish can convert over to consuming a prepared diet consisting of chunks of fresh shrimp, fish, and pieces of squid.

The Fortescue Waspfish is Reef Safe with caution as they will prey on any small fish or crustaceans that will fit in to its mouth, however they will not harm any corals.
