The Red Stop Light Cardinalfish (Apogonichthys hyalinus) occurs in the reefs of Indonesia. They have a solid red body, which helps prevent detection by both predators and prey when they hunt at night. They are nocturnal, hiding among rocks and coral during the day and hunting for small crustaceans by night. They reach a maximum size of 3 inches and should be housed in an aquarium with fish of similar size. Their diet consists of carnivorous preparations, such as mysis and krill. Given their size, they should not be kept with larger predatory fish.

Beautiful Red Stop Light Cardinal swims in out of the rock formation in the saltwater fish tank. Healthy and energetic after acclimation.
