The African Moony is native to coastal areas of West Africa, including marine salt water, brakish estuary and mangrove waters and even some freshwater areas. Moonies are one of the most tolerant fish over levels or lack of salinity. It can grow to 25cm long but it can be taller than it is long since the tip of the dorsal and anal fins can be 30cm apart.

There are 4 species of Monodactylus Moonfish or Moonies and 3 can be found in Africa: the African in West Africa, the Silver on the Indian Ocean coast and the Cape or Oval on the southern coast. The Dwarf Moony is native to southern Indian coasts.
