The young ones have stripes first and thus are often mistaken for the royal clown knife. As they mature the stripes turn into spots.... They are said to be piscevores which mean that they only eat live food... However, i have trained mine to take frozen blood worms, sadly its dead now... Very territorial... And they usually hunt at night.
