Males and females are nearly identical making breeding in captivity difficult. It will eat an omnivorous diet consisting of small inverts, quality flake foods, and frozen meaty foods. They can be a bully in a community reef tank so be sure not to pair with fish that can be bullied. It is generally reef safe if kept with the right tank mates. Sergeant could be semi-aggressive,Feed them any type of prepared meaty or vegetable foods that are freeze dried, frozen, flake, or pellet.
