The Pajama Cardinal is most certainly a extremely peculiar fish in regards to its appearance and behavioural manner. Its appearance consists of a silver based body coated in a red dotted back section, a black criss-cross mid section and a silver/yellow front section, all topped off with bright red eyes. Though it most definitely looks flamboyant, its personality is on the other spectrum and it holds a rather peaceful and elegant behaviour.
This unique fish is not very active and you can get away with homing it in a 40 litre tank size or more. It is a slow and patient swimmer and therefore should not be kept with the more aggressive classed fish. However, it has been known to have a aggressive behaviour towards the same species if kept in larger groups, the most they should be kept at is maybe 3-4 in order to eradicate this issue.
These fish are relatively easy to care for and are most definitely a great addition to any tank. When fed well and kept in the correct conditions, this fish will stand out in all fish systems.
The Pajama Cardinalfish must be offered a variety of meaty foods, such as brine and mysis shrimp, but also thrives on pellets and flakes.
