The Samurai Squirrelfish is capable of making loud clicking sounds and are sensitive to sounds like tapping on the glass of aquarium glass because it has large air bladders. It is a peaceful species and makes a good choice for a community fish tank. Also, make sure not to house the Samurai Squirrelfish with predatory fishes. It is generally nocturnal and requires plenty of caves and rocks in the tank as hiding spots to hide during the day. With its beautiful and vibrant color, the Samurai Squirrelfish makes a beautiful and captivating addition to any aquarium. It is a fast growing species and needs bigger aquarium. The Samurai Squirrelfish should be kept in small groups than pairs, since it might nip over each other. Make sure not to use net while handling it since it has spines on head and gills that can be entangled in the net. The Samurai Squirrelfish should not be housed with larger fish as it could be swallowed. Its large preopercular spine can inflict painful wounds to aquarist and should be cautious while handling it. The Samurai Squirrelfish is easy to handle and that makes it a good choice for a beginner aquarist.

The Samarai Squirrelfish has bright red and silvery-white stripes, and a bright red dorsal fin. As with other squirrels, they are safe with coral and with fish large enough not to become prey. These large eyes help them to see better in the dark as they are usually found in large schools beneath ledges or in dark cave recesses. They may be housed alone, or in small congregations, in aquariums with plenty of rocks and caves with overhangs which they can lurk beneath.
