The Pinnatus Batfish is one of the most remarkable species of saltwater aquarium fish, but notoriously difficult to keep in the home aquarium. Most wild-caught saltwater fish reject commercial foods and die from starvation, despite plenty of food being available in the tank. If that’s not enough, they require plenty of water (a single firebird needs 180-300 gallons), and perfect salinity levels. If people would like to own these gorgeous sea creatures, they should only buy captive-bred ones.
