 Soleichthys dori (Barred Sole)

Soleichthys dori
Randall & Munroe, 2008

Barred Sole

Not Reef Tank Suitable

Likely Fish-Only Tank Suitable


These fishes belong in the Order Pleuronectiformes and Suborder Pleuronectoidei, with few or any of interest to hobbyists.

All need a fine grain sandbed to bury themselves and an unencumbered environment to search for its foods, usually worms and crustaceans. Would be difficult to maintain long term.
