A lot of people buy the clown coris fish when they are young, seduced by their incredible color pattern, the plain white with bright orange markings.
However these fish grow very large in size, up to 120 cm in the wild, completely change in color and are so strong they can rearrange the entire aquarium décor.
They are best kept in a fish-only system with a tight lid as these fish can jump! Provide a sand bottom of at least 5 cm thick, because they like to dig in at night or when startled.
