The Red Spotted Sandperch exhibits beautiful red polka dots on its body, and makes a beautiful addition to a reef tank. It grows to about 3 inches long, and looks lovely when it rests on the bottom, hopping from one place to another. The Red Spotted Sandperch is considered completely reef safe, and generally eats worms, shrimps and crabs present in the tank. It thrives well in a temperature range of 75-82 degree Fahrenheit, and should be provided with many hiding spots, a thick sand bed and many live rocks. The Red Spotted Sandperch grows up to 5 inches, and should be kept in a tank not less than 20 gallon. It is basically a bottom dweller, and loves to spend its time resting at the bottom. The Red Spotted Sandperch is carnivores and chiefly feeds on meaty seafoods, and should be fed at least twice a day. It should not be housed with larger damselfish, larger dottybacks and hawkfishes, because of its petite size it might become their snacks. Also, the Red Spotted Sandperch may quarrel with the same looking species and with the ones who also tend to inhabit the bottom side of the tank. When firghtened, it might jump out of the aquarium, therefore keeping it inside a closed lidded tank is recommended.
