    Additional Information & Description

    This fish is VERY VERY slow except at lights out. It eats spectrum pellets although would prefer mysis shrimp. Pretty to look at, pretty lame to watch. Great nano fish cause it doesn't need to swim around a lot.

    Agreed! I have 3 and need to sell them. They are cool looking... but talk about a BORING fish. The move around a lot at night though.

    The Bangaii's don't move around much either. It's not that these fish are slow, they're just not very active during the day. The just sort of *hang* out
