Husbandry

(Gilchrist, 1906)

The smoothskin scorpionfish is endemic in South Africa and is only found from the Cape Peninsula to Algoa Bay in a depth range of 9-110 meters.

Coccotropsis gymnoderma is a small well camouflaged fish, with an orange body having a distinctive cream patch to the rear.
It`s head has a pleated, wrinkled appearance, the dorsal fin has spines and the head may occasionally be pinkish.

This fish is common on reefs but is seldom spotted due to its cryptic colouring and sedentary habits. It is usually not solitary.
