High Hat Drum also known as the Hi Hat, Highhat Fish or Equetus acuminatus are found throughout the Tropical Western Atlantic.

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 High Hat Drum has a shimmering silvery body marked by dark horizontal stripes and a tall anterior dorsal fin.

It requires a peaceful community aquarium with a sandy bottom, and abundant hiding places. It tends to hide during the acclimation process to the new aquarium until it feels secure.

They may eat smaller fish species and invertebrates but will not harm corals, they are a wonderful fish for a saltwater fish only aquarium.

Regular meals consisting of a variety of live items such as brine shrimp and prepared meaty foods should bring it out of hiding. The Hi-Hat will comb the sandy bottom looking for worms, crustaceans, and small fish if it is hungry. It may even eat the occasional fireworm.
