Tassle Filefish

I have a 42 gallon hex tank with a single clownfish in the tank. I was considering getting a tassle filefish for the tank (1"-2" in length).

Could anyone fill me on on how they act, what they need, how hardy they are, etc? Do they hide much? Are they finiky eaters? Are they incredibly passive?

Not recommended with active fish, especially a moroon.
