Notes: The Leafy Filefish also known as the Tassle Filefish or Frickly Leatherjacket Filefish is a beautiful filefish with what can be described as tassels growing out the sides of the fish.
To be successful with the Leafy Filefish keep with docile tankmates, in a well established rocky and weedy environment. Provide adequate shelter sites, not aggressive to fish tankmates. The Leafy Filefish is aggressive to its own and related fish. Do not keep with puffers, or triggerfish, fish that may nip off its skin flaps.
