The Snubnose pompano feed almost exclusively on other animals that live in sand, for example, all species of mollusks and other invertebrates with and without shell. Adult animals reach a size of up to 110 cm, for this reason they are not a fish for a "traditional" aquarium, however, be successfully maintained in some show aquariums.
