General information on Ochrestriped Cardinalfish
The Ochrestriped Cardinalfish originates from coral reefs in Fiji and Indonesia. They are long and slender in shape and have an ochre-red color with gold. The big black and blue eyes are separated by a black spot close to the tail that confuses potential predators about which direction they are facing. An aquarium of 55-gallon size or greater that has a cave with calm tank mates is perfect for this slow and deliberate swimmer. This marine fish is likely to conceal itself in sea grass and other plants, or employ long spined urchins to camouflage. If an aquarium with a larger size is available, it can handle only a tiny portion of the species. As a group, they’ll create a strict hierarchy, without aggression.
