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.
