My experience with oxymocanthus longstrinosus (harlequin/ acropora filefish)

OxymocanthusLongstrinosus

This is my experience with the acropora eating filefish, an obligate corallivore in the wild, only consuming Acropora Millepora. mine was trained onto brine shrimp before it was purchased.

after doing some research, i purchased a harlequin filefsh last sunday (9/5). it ate frozen brine immediately, but it started showing problems that were related to cyanide poisioning. after a few hours, it died. it was a shame.

If you need any advice with your harlequin filefish you can hit me up with questions. i also own an aptasia eating filefish.

I don’t own one of these fish or a SW setup, but I’m curious: how did it die from cyanide poisoning? Can that happen in SW setups?
