Overview

The Yellow Cardinalfish is found on ledges or caves in schools. The Yellow Cardinalfish tends to become more active at night. They have a long slender shape and their orange/red with gold color will add a diversity of color to your aquarium.

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 Yellow 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.
