Latin Name:Nemateleotris magnifica Lifespan: 15 years
Distribution: Indo-Pacific Estimated Size: 3"
Every Firefish has a specific hole in the aquarium that it will run into and hide if it becomes scared. These wholes are known as 'bolt-holes'. Their cheerful personality and elegant coloring have made them very popular with fish hobbyists.
They are not known to be aggressive towards other fish species, however they are very aggressive with each other. If you have a mated pair they will be able to coexist in an aquarium.
