The Red-Stripe Cardinalfish (Ostorhinchus margaritophorus) can be found among shallow lagoons and reefs off of the coast of Singapore. Their body is a white or silver with golden-brown stripes running from their nose to caudal fin. They grow to a maximum size of 4 inches and thrive in small schools. They hide among caves and crevasses during the day and hunt for small crustaceans by night. They are peaceful fish that add a lot of movement to an aquarium. They should be kept in a reef tank with plenty of hiding spaces and should be kept with fish of similar size and temperament. Their diet consists of carnivorous blends, including mysis and krill.
