Overview

The Scarlet Fin Soldier, also called the Tahitian Squirrelfish or Blueline Squirrelfish, is bright red with thin, white horizontal stripes.

A 70 gallon or larger aquarium with generous amounts of live rock and plenty of room to swim provides a good setting. A small group is suitable as long as there are adequate hiding places and space in the aquarium. It is a nocturnal fish, hiding while the lights are on and waiting for the cover of darkness to swim in search of food. It will eat invertebrates such as worms (including fireworms), crustaceans, and serpent stars.

When first introduced into the aquarium, live saltwater feeder shrimp should be used to entice this fish to eat. Its meals should vary between live feeder shrimps, freeze-dried shrimps, and chopped marine meats that will move in the water column.

Approximate Purchase Size: Small 2" to 3", Medium 3" to 5", Large 5" to 7"
