The Purple Red Smooth Rhinopias is one scorpion fish you are going to want to acquire. This is a stunning scorpion in both color and appearance that we happen to have in stock at the moment. We recommend this fish for the advance hobbyist because they maybe finicky eaters at first and may require target feedings. Like all Rhinopias, all hobbyists should proceed with caution because their dorsal fins are venomous. Be sure to house only with fish that have similar temperaments and are larger than the scorpions mouth or they may become a meal.
