The Orbfish looks similar to the Spotted Sicklefish but is actually related to the batfish. They are far less common than the Sicklefish and do not grow as large. Typically found along shoreline with muddy bottom. They can be caught using worms or small pieces of prawn meat and hook size should not be too large due to the size of its mouth.
