One important consideration before purchasing a Hi-Hat is that there must be a sand substrate in place for it to be kept properly due to its habit of searching through the sand looking for food. This fish is a carnivore and will expect meaty foods to be offered as part of its diet. The Hi-Hat is usually shy until it has settled into an aquarium and has become comfortable with its new surroundings.
