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 Red Strip Cardinal is a friendly schooling fish. It's one of the smaller and more colourful Ostorhincus species, making it a perfect fish for our aquaria. It has reddish stripes on a white body and some blueish-white thin lines. One white line is spotted, making it quite distinct from the other members of the family.
Like most Apogonidae, they can be kept as a couple, but in our opinion they look far better when kept in a school.
The Red Stripe Cardinal requires a well balanced diet of foods such as flake foods, pellet foods and chopped meaty foods.
