Captive Care: Aiptasia Eating Filefish are some of the top utilized fish in the hobby. As the name suggests this filefish will snack on Aiptasia. These peaceful, slow-moving fish will hang out on the reef. They will eat small inverts like all filefish so make sure you don’t have any high-end shrimp. They will sometimes pick at corals as well, but that is really going to depend on the fish itself.
