Overview

The Hi-Hat, also known as High-Hat, has a shimmering silvery body marked by dark horizontal stripes and a tall anterior dorsal fin.

It requires a peaceful community in a 70 gallon or larger aquarium with a sandy bottom, and abundant hiding places. It tends to hide during the acclimation process to the new aquarium until it feels secure.

Regular meals consisting of a variety of live items such as black worms and brine shrimp and prepared meaty items should bring it out of hiding. The Hi-Hat will comb the sandy bottom looking for worms, crustaceans, and small fish if it is hungry. It may even eat the occasional fireworm.

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