Captive Care: These peaceful fish might not be the flashiest species out there, but they make up for it with their chill vibes and slow-moving antics. Plus, they’re totally on top of their game when it comes to clearing out aphasia! So if you want a fish that will keep your coral kingdom on point, the Green Filefish is your new best friend.

Of course, as with any fish, there are a few things to keep in mind. These filefish might have a taste for small inverts, so make sure you don’t have any high-end shrimp that you’re particularly attached to. And while they may occasionally peck at some corals, whether they do so depends on the unique personality of each individual fish.
