The Orange Spotted Files are shy fish, and rarely aggressive towards other fish except for those of its own genus. This is usually a big file the size of your full hand. I would recommend a tank size of 15o gallons or larger.. They are not considered reef safe and they will eat invertebrates. The diet should include shaved shrimp, squid, scallop, mysis shrimp, freeze-dried krill soaked in a vitamin supplement, and frozen marine algae. The Orange Spotted Files are more common during the spring months.
