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 Striped Squirrelfish is red with multiple white horizontal stripes.
An aquarium with generous amounts of live rock and plenty of room to swim provides a good setting. A small group is suitable as long as there are adequate hiding places and space in the aquarium. They are a nocturnal fish, hiding while the lights are on and waiting for the cover of darkness to swim in search of food. They will eat invertebrates such as worms (including fireworms), crustaceans, and serpent stars. But will not harm corals.
When first introduced into the aquarium, live feeder shrimp should be used to entice this fish to eat. Its meals should vary between live feeder shrimps, freeze-dried shrimps, and chopped marine meats that will move in the water column.
