The Flame Cardinal or Flamefish has an orangish-red colored body with a black splotch under the back of the dorsal fin and behind the eye.  The eyes have unique white parallel lines through them.
The Flame Cardinal is a great fish for all levels of aquarists.  It should be kept single or as a mated pair in larger tanks.  They will hover close to ledges and crevices near structures.  Have plenty of live rock for shelter.  May eat small invertebrates.
Feed cardinal fish a well-balanced diet including small meaty foods such as brine shrimp, mysis shrimp and krill. Try feeding Ocean Nutrition Formula One Pellets, an all in one food.
