Both the head and body of the Zebra Dartfish are light green. Its attractive slender body has numerous vertical, evenly-spaced thin orange stripes displaying an intricate pattern. This species is one of the most peaceful aquarium fish, delicately attractive and highly disease resistant.
An aquarium with a sandy bottom, algae, and or coral will provide a healthy environment. They will need numerous hiding places and will also bury into finer sand over night or when threatned. They may also jump therfore a lid or mesh guard is recommened before adding this species to the aquarium. Small groups or pairs tend to do better in an aquarium than a single individual, but all need to be introduced to the tank simultaneously and have plenty of swimming room.
The meaty diet of the Zebra Dartfish should include fresh or frozen chopped mussel, cockle, fish and brine and mysis shrimp.
