Very large aquariums hold at least 700 Litres (185 US Gallons).

It is easy to keep the Sapphire Devil fish. (e) The specific gravity (SG) should be between 1,020 and 1,025, the temperature between 23°C (73.4°F) and 26°C (78.8°F). The recommended pH level is between 8.0 and 8.3 since marine fish are used to these levels in general.
