The Cottonwick is a silver, white fish with light yellow striping and a black posterior and caudal fin. This fish does best with larger semi-aggressive fish as the Cottonwick will eat small fish that can fit in its mouth. This fish originates from the Caribbean and Atlantic. Make sure to feed large meaty foods and provide enough swimming room.
