The Flying Jet Sea Moth is a unique species that can make a great addition to any saltwater aquarium. They are highly sought after in the hobby due to their interesting camouflage appearance and their mottled brown coloration. With two dorsal fins, a thin and long body, and a frog-like mouth, this species is truly unique. They require plenty of live rock and a mature aquarium in order to thrive, making them a great addition for the more experienced hobbyist. Their belonging to the Callionymidae family also makes them similar to other interesting species such as the Mandarin Dragonets and Scooter Blennies. All in all, the Flying Jet Sea Moth is a fascinating species that will add plenty of life and beauty to any saltwater aquarium.

This 30-gallon reef aquarium is the ideal environment for the Flying Jet Sea Moth and will give them the opportunity to thrive. To ensure their health and happiness, live sand substrate and live rock are necessary, as well as live food sources, which can be found within the live rock. Additionally, a refugium attached to the aquarium can provide the necessary nutrition. If more than one species of the Flying Jet Sea Moth is desired, it is best to introduce them to the aquarium all at the same time. This will avoid any potential territorial issues in the tank.

The Flying Jet Sea Moth is a difficult fish to keep due to its feeding habits. They need large amounts of live rock in which they find their micro-crustacean food. Finely cut meaty foods and vitamin-enriched brine and mysis shrimp may be acceptable substitutes.
