Husbandry

(Shaw, 1803)

Our opinon: Not for tanks smaller than 600 gallons. An animal of this size (20") needs a lot of room an a stomping ground to defend and search food. Lives in depth of 0 - 30m.

Reports of ciguatera poisoning!

Synonyms:
Haemulon scirius (Shaw, 1803)
Sparus sciurus Shaw, 1803
