Info

(Bleeker, 1856)

Soleichthys heterohinos is also known as Tiger Sole. Synonyms are: Aesopia heterohinos, Aesopia multifasciata, Parophrys nigrostriolata and several other variants of the aforementioned. Its distribution area extends over nearly the entire Indo-Pacific area, from India to Samoa and to the shores of Japan. South to New South Wales in Australia and the Marianas and Marshall Islands in Micronesia.

They are found in both, sandy, sheltered lagoons, as well as in reef areas facing seaward. Usually as good as not to see, they are almost completely buried under sand, so that merely the eyes and nose remain free and are to be seen. Even at the slightest disturbance they disappear with a rapidity in a "cloud of sediment." .

The Tiger Sole is more active at night and feeds on small crustaceans and shrimp and fish fry, fisheggs and worms. It reaches a maximum size of about 18 cm. In the aquarium trade, it is rare to find.
