A very good reef dweller the Sargassum is a fan of coral ledges, and needs a minimum of 30 Gallons.

 

The Sargassum is fed by ambush. It waits for a crustacean or fish to pass by before advancing taking the victim in one go. The Sargassum has been observed to eat larger fish that are nearly identical to its own size.

 

A diet consisting of shrimp and feeder fish is recommended. Don’t overfeed, because the Sargassum could cease feeding.
