Overview

The Captive-Bred Yellowstriped Cardinalfish comes from the reefs of Fiji or Indonesia. They have a long slender shape with 6 yellow to orange stripes running along its body.

The Captive-Bred Yellowstriped Cardinalfish has a unique advantage over wild-harvested species. They are hardier and more accustomed to conditions found in home aquariums. Therefore, it makes a great choice for novices and seasoned aquarists alike.

A 10-gallon or larger aquarium with a cave and peaceful tank mates is suitable for this slow and methodical swimmer. It tends to hide in sea grass or other plants, or may use long spined urchins for camouflage. If a larger aquarium is available, it will handle a small group of this species. As a group, they will establish a strict hierarchy without aggressiveness.

The Captive-Bred Yellowstriped Cardinalfish requires a well-balanced diet of meaty foods such as feeder shrimp, flake foods, pellet foods, marine flesh, bloodworms, and depending on its size, live feeder fish.

Approximate Purchase Size: Small: 3/4" to 1-1/2"; Medium: 1-1/2" to 2"; Large: 2" to 2-1/2"
