Baby Whale Fish

The Baby Whale is an intelligent Mormyrid that is an interesting fish to keep, and it has quite a good personality. These fish are active, but they will need a cave or some type of hiding spot to seek cover in the aquarium. The "baby whale" is a carnivore, and it should be fed a diet of live and frozen foods such as ghost shrimp, blood worms and black worms. These fish will get aggressive as they get larger, so they are not suitable with small timid schooling fish.
