The Yellow Stripe Clingfish is an ideal aquarium inhabitant, and requires a 10 gallon or larger aquarium with plenty of live rock and corals to thrive. Not only do these fish live in close association with a long spine urchin or branching corals for protection and food, but they also prey upon parasitic bivalves that attack various species of corals. As such, they provide a beneficial role in a reef aquarium, allowing aquarists to maintain a healthy, thriving environment. Furthermore, they are relatively hardy and can adapt to a wide range of water parameters, making them a suitable choice for novice aquarists.

The Yellow Stripe Clingfish is a carnivore that requires a diet of meaty foods such as finely chopped fresh or frozen marine fish, squid, mysis shrimp, vitamin-enriched brine shrimp, and frozen carnivore preparations. It is important to provide a variety of these foods to ensure the fish receives the proper nutrition and remains healthy. Additionally, it is recommended to feed the fish small amounts multiple times a day rather than one large meal. This will help to ensure the fish receives a balanced diet.

The approximate purchase size of a 1″ to 2″ ring is typically around $30.
