Firefish (Nemateleotris decora)

The Firefish or Nemateleotris decora is a great colorful salt water aquarium fish for beginners. This fish has a striking variety of purple, red, white, and yellow decorating its body. This fish is very easy to care for and only requires a tank about 10 gallons or more. Although this fish is considered peaceful, it will battle its own kind unless they are a couple. The Firefish is also known as the Decorated Firefish, Purple Dartfish, Decorated Dartfish, or Flame Firefish and can grow up to 3" in size. This fish prefers 72-78° F water temperature and pH 8.1-8.4. The Firefish is a carnivore and its colors will fade if not fed the proper diet. Watch out these fish also have a tendency to jump so make sure you have a covered tank. This fish also likes to hid sometimes so giving it some cover is recommended. The Firefish can live a bit longer than 3 years.  You can check out the Firefish in the video below.
