The Velvet Scorpionfish have an overall colour usually of a grey or brown with white or dark patches to aid in camouflage. 

They are usually found around sandy and rubble bottoms, frequently near reefs.

They can be kept solitary or in small groups with other fish larger than its self. They will prey on any fish or crustaceans smaller than itself but will not harm any corals.

The Velvet Scorpionfish diet consists of live foods such as feeder shrimp or frozen chopped meaty foods.
