This is a small fish with beautiful fluorescent markings around the eyes. They are easy to keep, sometimes very shy, and the perfect candidate for a peaceful reef tank. Identification This fish is torpedo-shaped with a body colored light pink, which fades into deep red or orange-red toward the tail. The upper and lower lobes of the tail are dark, almost black, and there are two dark stripes that form a V extend on to the soft dorsal and anal fins, respectively. The dorsal is with extended first dorsal rays & are often flicked. Size 3 inches maximum though most specimens only reach 2.5 inches Aggressiveness Peaceful to all other animals except conspecifics. Needs only passive tank mates (passive gobies and blennies, small jawfish, and fish that tend to ignore other small fish like Chromis). Dottybacks, dwarf angels, damsels, wrasses, hawks, puffers, and triggers would be in most cases too much for these fish. Large anemones may eat them. They are extremely intolerant of others in the same genus. It is best to keep singly or male/female pairs. Groups can be made of only 5 fish or more, but each fish needs 20 gal each. Current They dont really mind how strong the current is, but do need the current to sweep food past their bolt holes at which they pick at. Hardiness Easy- This fish is easy to care for. It could be a great first fish in the tank (provided perfect water quality & proper cycling) and will be less shy than if it came to an established tank with larger fish.

This fish is absolutely gorgeous! I bought two and they both have very different personalities. One spends most of his time out in the open and the other prefers to stay hidden and come out every now and then. They aren't a bold or aggressive fish so be wary if you have aggressive tank mates. Love these new additions!!

Nice looking fish, they just hide too much. Got these as my first fish in my establishing tank they spent the first few days hidden in the rock one of them never came out to eat and could only assume that it had died inside the rock as I never saw it again. The other was nice popped out of his bolt hole most of the time until you went near the tank.
