The Red Tail Filefish has a dark emerald green body with a dark blue patch on its belly, the tail is an orange yellow colour.

The Red Tail Filefish can be a demanding Filefish species as they can be difficult to initially start feeding. Using Live Brineshrimp or pulped up squid or shrimp flesh onto a piece of rock can usually start them feeding.

The fare better in a system with other peaceful, non-competitive fish species, they should only be kept singly or as a male-female pair. Provide plenty of live rock shelter from them to hide in when feeling threatened. 

Their diet should include a variety of shaved shrimp, squid, scallop, mysis shrimp, freeze-dried krill soaked in a vitamin supplement, and frozen marine algae. It should be fed no fewer than three times per day.
