Orange Spotted Filefish. Like everyone else has said, it is an obligate coralivore in the wild. Some have had limited success mashing mysis shrimp onto a dead coral skeleton and getting it to eat the shrimp by picking at the coral but this has only worked for a few months and the fish eventually die of malnutrition. It will decimate SPS polyps if placed in a reef tank.
