Overview

The Black Cardinalfish comes from the reefs of the Indonesia, and has a long slender shape and is mostly black in color. The large black eyes of this fish are complimented by spots on the fins of similar size.

A 30 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 Black Cardinalfish requires a well balanced diet of meaty foods such as enriched brine shrimp, enriched mysis shrimp, flake foods, and smaller marine pellet food.

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