Husbandry

Frogfish have a big adaptability according to their environment. This of course is for disguising. The frogfish will poise unmoved for hours waiting for prey.
Frogfish use their first dorsal fin spike, that is remodeled to a rod, to catch their prey.
When the prey is snapping after the rod, the frogfish sucks it into its mouth.
Unfortunately, frogfish are very difficult to specify.
