Dartfish are an excellent addition to reef aquariums as they have a small adult size and a lot of personality. For the hobbyist looking for a very active, hardy and brightly colored fish, then look no farther than the Firefish. They are known to jump when startled, so be sure to house them in a covered aquarium. This small fish of 3" is full of personality and will make a great addition to smaller aquariums down to 30 gallons or so. Use caution if adding more than one, unless it is a very large aquarium. They will pick at algae within the aquarium, but that cannot be considered their diet. Provide them a mix of meaty foods, and they will generally will accept pelletized food after a few days. They can be territorial to other dartfish and bottom dwellers. They have a yellow head that turns to white then to red towards their caudal tail. This firefish has a vibrant line of purple on its head.

ACCLIMATION: Avoid exposing new aquatic life to bright lights after opening the box. Turn off aquarium lights prior to floating aquatic life. Allow the sealed bag with your new fish to float in your aquarium for at least 15 minutes (but no longer than one hour) to ensure the water in the bag matches the temperature in your aquarium. A bacteria booster addition can assist with the addition of new aquatic life. Petco offers free water testing in store to determine if your water is safe for the addition of new aquatic life. DIET: A well-balanced diet consists of a variety of flakes, pellets, freeze-dried and frozen foods, depending on the species. FEEDING: Feed sparingly and no more than fish can eat in 1-2 minutes. Overfeeding can quickly foul the water, especially in smaller aquariums.
