In the wild, this fish stalks large, sand-dwelling halpochromines (eg, F. rostratus). Its prey is not the fish, but the eggs and larvae in the mouths of brooding females! It attacks these by butting its head against the buccal pouch from below. It eats exculsively eggs and larvae in the wild. It is unknown whether mouthbrooding females of this species are attacked by males.
