A 30-gallon or larger aquarium with plenty of live rock and multiple hiding places is the ideal environment for a Moorish Idol. The live rock provides the Moorish Idol with a place to hunt, feed, and hide, while also providing a secure environment. It should be noted that the Moorish Idol is not usually aggressive unless the tank mates have a similar shape. It is important to monitor the tank environment regularly to ensure the Moorish Idol’s health and well-being. In addition, providing adequate food sources and clean water is essential for the Moorish Idol to thrive. Furthermore, it is advisable to introduce the Moorish Idol to the aquarium slowly to avoid any potential stress.

This diet should be supplemented with high quality, easily digestible proteins, such as finely chopped crustacean flesh, vitamin enriched frozen brine and mysis shrimp. Additionally, if insufficient algae is present in the aquarium, a quality dried seaweed should be added to the diet. This will ensure that the fish are receiving sufficient nutrition and energy. Furthermore, to ensure that the fish are getting the best possible nutrition, only the highest quality ingredients should be used. Taking these simple steps will ensure that the fish remain healthy and vibrant.

The approximate purchase size for this product is 1″ to 2-1/2″.
