The Blue and Yellow Fusiler occurs in very large schools among the reefs of the Western Pacific. Their bodies are long and slender and are silver to blue in color with a striking yellow stripe that covers the back of the fish. They are a wonderful schooling fish for a large aquarium, and will draw more timid fish out into the open.
A 125-gallon or larger aquarium with plenty of swimming room is recommended. A small school of 5 or more Blue and Yellow Fusilers makes an impressive display in a large FOWLR (Fish Only With Live Rock) aquarium. They do well with groupers, snappers, large wrasse, and other large predatory fish as long as they are not large enough to consume the Fusilers. They are not reef safe, as they will consume most invertebrates within the aquarium.
The Blue and Yellow Fusiler should be offered a balanced diet of both meaty and vegetable items. Offer mysis and vitamin enriched brine shrimp, frozen carnivore and omnivore foods, as well as a quality flake food.
