Photo Of The Week - Cheekspot Scorpion (Scorpaenodes evides)
The Cheeckspot Scorpion Fish at first glance is a fish whose bold reddish brown tones and dragon like appearance can intimidate most hobbyists, but with the right care can make an awesome addition. Since they are scorpion fish we recommend them to advance hobbyists. Furthermore, when handling proceed with caution because the dorsal fins are venomous. Mostly found in the Japanese waters, hiding around coral reefs and rock caves, so their new home should include multiple hiding spots. Cheekspot Scorpions have an aggressive temperament, so it shouldn't be added to aquariums that house small motive inverts or fish because they may become a snack. To help curb this, provide a varied diet of larger meaty foods like krill.
