Looking for a fish that is bold in appearance, moderately easy to keep, and hardy? The Ochre striped Cardinal would make a great addition. Like most cardinal fish, the Ochre Striped is a peaceful fish and should be housed with tank mates with a similar temperament. However, be aware that you may not see them much during the day due to their nocturnal nature. Provide an environment with plenty of rock structures that they can hide in during the day. Adding these cardinals with branching coral makes a great display since they are commonly found around them in the wild. To maintain optimal health provide it a varied of meaty frozen foods and marine pellets.
