Firefish, Helfrichi Info
The Hawaii Helfrichi Firefish, Nemateleotris Helfrichi is bright with a yellow face that fades to vibrant purple, before disappearing to a white pearl. These aquarium fishes are extremely hardy and serene and can be kept together with other peaceful fish in a tank that is reef-based. However, they may be territorial towards other blennies, dartfish, or gobies inside a smaller tank.
Gobies usually stay toward lower levels of the aquarium, where they can be found burrowing and digging in the sand. However, this species is also a well-known jumper, and a tightly fitting lid is recommended.
