Yellowstriped Cardinalfish

Greek Name: Ostorhinchus cyanosoma

$18.99

-

The Yellowstriped Cardinalfish comes from the reefs of Fiji or Indonesia. The fish has a long slender form with six yellow and orange lines throughout the body.
A larger or 10-gallon aquarium that includes a cave, as well as calm tank mates, is perfect for this slow and deliberate swimmer. It is often found hiding in seagrass and other plants and may employ long spined urchins to camouflage. If an aquarium with a larger size is accessible, it can accommodate a small group of the species. As a group, they’ll create a strict hierarchy, without any aggression.

 

The Yellowstriped Cardinalfish requires a well-balanced diet that includes meaty food like feeder shrimp flake foods, pellet food as well as bloodworms, marine flesh, and, depending on the size live feeder fish.

Description

General information regarding Yellowstriped Cardinalfish

The Yellowstriped Cardinalfish Ostorhinchus cyanosoma comes from the reefs of Fiji or Indonesia. They have a long slender shape and have an orange-red color with gold. Their huge eyes, both yellow and black, are set off by a black spot close to the tail that confuses potential predators about which direction it is facing. A smaller to a larger aquarium with a cave as well as calm tank mates are perfect for this slow and deliberate swimmer. It is usually found hiding in seagrass and other plants or might employ long spined urchins to camouflage. If there is a bigger aquarium accessible, it can accommodate only a tiny portion of this saltwater fish. As a group, they’ll set up a strict hierarchy without aggressiveness.
