The Purple Firefish Goby, Nemateleotris decora, also known as the Decorated Firefish, exhibits a beautiful lavender/white body with bright red caudal and dorsal fins. It also features an elongated first dorsal spine that sticks up from its back. The Purple Firefish should be kept in a tank with plenty of a live rock, a sandy substrate, and a tightly-sealed lid to prevent escapes. They can be kept in pairs and or solitary. The Purple Firefish will eat a carnivorous diet of mainly frozen or live brine or mysis shrimp. This is a gorgeous fish that will thrive in any reef tank if housed with peaceful tank mates.
Awesome fish, if a little shy during the day. When the moonlights in my tank come on, she perks right up and plays in the current from my powerheads. She arrived on time, and mostly unstressed, was eating mysis shrimp by day 2. Would recommend this fish to anyone looking for something pretty to add to a peaceful tank.
Very beautiful fish, has adapted very well
