With its rather flat head and white dots covering most its body, L14 shows its resemblance to the whale shark that we often see in nature programs on television . At least that's the first impression that I got when I got the big specimens from my importer. This fish has strange hooks in its mouth. That is why we have to be careful when we handle the adult fish because this fish will 'bite' you when one of your fingers is to close to its mouth.

L 14 has big appetite for food. It never shies away from foods even though during day time. That is why we have to pay more attention to the ammonia level in the aquarium than any other fish.
