Livestock arrives in and out of stock very regularly, depending upon availability of the item from the source. The more rare and expensive items are often difficult to hold in stock, and can take time to source, so we generally require a deposit to locate and purchase the extremely rare items
The Blue Eye Cardinalfish have a long slender shape and are an ochre-red with gold colour. The large black and blue eyes are offset by a black spot near the tail which confuses possible predators which way the fish is facing.
An 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 Blue Eye Cardinalfish requires a well balanced diet of foods such as flake foods, pellet foods and chopped meaty foods.
