The Eastern Hulafish is related to Assessors and Comets. A very colorful fish, the Eastern Hulafish has a single black stripe extending almost the whole length of its body with white below that and red and yellow above it. Some also exhibit blue iridescent scales on its face. As the Eastern Hulafish grows, its caudal fin will grow into a spade-like shape, and the males will have more emphasized filaments. The Eastern Hulafish gets its name from the unique swimming pattern it exhibits while swimming in groups which resembles Hula dancers. Reaching a maximum size of 4 inches, the Eastern Hulafish is a peaceful fish that enjoys the company of their own species. Therefore, it is highly recommended to keep the Eastern Hulafish in groups of 4 or more. The Eastern Hulafish are jumpers, so it is also recommended to keep a cover over the tank to prevent them from jumping out of the aquarium. Native to the southeast coastline of Australia where the water temperature averages 65 degrees Fahrenheit, the Eastern Hulafish has fared very well in ORA's Florida greenhouses although it does show signs of distress in water over 78 degrees Fahrenheit. Great care should be taken to ensure the water temperature always remains below 78 degrees. The Eastern Hulafish loves to eat small foods such as, copepods, artemia, small pellets and flake.
