The Pinnatus Batfish, also called the Dusky Batfish or Red-Faced Batfish, is a wonder to behold, billowing gracefully through the aquarium as if flying in slow motion. A round black body and large round fins outlined by a fiery orange corona give this fish a commanding presence. Some see the shadow of a gliding hawk with two outstretched wings in its stunning profile. It can potentially grow to an adult height of 18 inches, measuring from the tip of the dorsal to the tip of the anal fin.
It is peaceful and hardy when provided with a deep tank of at least 300 gallons and plenty of unobstructed room to swim. Not a good reef dweller, it will eat many types of sessile invertebrates including corals and anemones. As with all Batfish, the Pinnatus is susceptible to ich.
When first introduced into the aquarium, live saltwater feeder shrimp should be used to entice this fish to eat. A varied diet of meaty foods such as shrimp, scallops, vitamin-enriched brine shrimp, and frozen herbivore preparations will help the Pinnatus to thrive, especially when fed three times a day.
Size: Approx 1-3"

The Comline® DOC Skimmer 9004 DC is designed for use in seawater from 60 to 300 liters (15 to 79 Gal). It operates according to the TUNZE® flash skimming principle and acquires the water through an efficient surface suction with a surface film removal, and can therefore also be used as a "stand-alone" solution in the aquarium. The TUNZE® Foamer generates large volumes of fine air bubbles with a diameter of between .1 and .3 mm (.004 - .012 in.) and is especially quiet during operation.
The Comline® DOC Skimmer with a magnet holder for glass up to a thickness of 12 mm (1/2") is supplied installation-ready.
Air flow regulation and silencer
for an exceptionally quiet
Simple, quiet and effective - these are the current demands towards aquarium components. That is precisely what distinguishes the small Comline® DOC Skimmer 9001 DC - a true "plug and play" skimmer for small seawater aquariums with 20 to 146 liters (5.3 to 37 USgal.). There is no complicated setting or regular adjustment required for the operation. A simple installation into a corner of the aquarium is sufficient and it will work autonomously.
