Aquacultured Pajama Cardinal Fish do best in groups (at least 3) with peaceful tank mates like Firefish and Gobies since they are slow swimmers. They very much like darker aquariums, or cave structures. Since they are cultured specimens, they do excellent on prepared diets of marine pellets and frozen meaty foods. They have a small adult size of about 3", so this cardinal is an excellent addition to smaller aquariums. The Pajama Cardinal is a silver white in color with a yellow head and black, thick strip down the center. The posterior end is littered with brown spots, which really help this fish stand out. They are found within the Indo-Pacific in groups inhabiting sheltered bays and lagoons. In the wild, this cardinal feeds at night so it may be beneficial to feed when the lights are off around.

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.
