Purple Firefish, also known as the Decorated Firefish, Purple Dartfish, Decorated Dartfish, or Flame Firefish, was first discovered in the Indo-west Pacific Ocean through Randall and Allen. The body's color is diverse in its yellow-to-white, as well as deep shades of purple that start at the head and end tipped in maroon. It needs a 20-gallon or larger tank with lots of loose coral rubble to form the aquascape. Also, it requires the lid must be tight enough to stop it from escaping the tank. It is not likely to become aggressive with other tank mates, but it is territorial and fights with its own kind unless it is a mated pair. This saltwater fish will feed mostly on prey that is suspended within the water but it can also pick up food off the bottom. Its diverse diet will consist of shaved or chopped seafood and frozen food preparations for carnivores and vitamin-enriched mysis shrimp. The vibrant coloring fades in the absence of a vitamin-enriched diet. Approximate Purchase Size: Small: 3/4" to 1-1/4"; Medium: 1-1/4" to 2"
