The Lined Dartfish is a peaceful and active species that is a great addition to any home aquarium. It is a hardy fish that is easy to care for and can live up to 10 years if provided with the right environment. It should be kept in an aquarium of no less than 30 gallons with plenty of loose coral rubble and a tight-fitting lid. Additionally, the aquarium should have ample swimming room and a sand bottom for burrowing. Lined Dartfish should be kept in pairs in their natural environment and should also be housed in such a way in the home aquarium. They are also timid around larger fish, so it is recommended to keep them with other peaceful small fish in order to provide them with a safe and comfortable home.

In order to ensure the health of the Lined Dartfish, it is important to feed them a varied diet. It should include chopped or shaved seafood, brine shrimp, and mysis shrimp. Additionally, it is important to supplement their diet with algae-based foods such as seaweed and spirulina. Furthermore, it is also beneficial to give them some frozen foods that are enriched with vitamins and minerals. Doing so will help them to stay healthy and active. By following these guidelines, you can be sure that your Lined Dartfish will have the nutrition they need to thrive.

Due to the small size of these cigars, they are not typically stocked in most cigar shops.
