Product Description

Rosy razorfish are another great aquarium fish. We normally find them smaller than the Pearly razorfish. Also distinguishing the Rosy from the Pearly, is that the Rosy razorfish’s eyes are defined by a dark circle, making them appear much larger. Additionally, this draws your attention to how they move their eyes, scanning their surroundings as they swim and explore the aquarium. Furthermore, the Rosy razorfish is more obviously colored, with a dark line distinguishing the base of the dorsal fine, and a rosy bar down the center in smaller fish. Rosy stripes can also be seen on the lower half of some fish. Like the Pearly razorfish, the base color of the Rosy razorfish if pearly white. As with the other two species of razorfish, Rosy Razorfish are easy to maintain, eating pelleted, frozen, and live foods, although they do require a fairly deep sand bed to sleep in at night.

Please Note:  Any new fish purchased from us or from a local pet store should to be quarantined.  All fish from anywhere in the wild can be possible carriers of bacteria and protozoa that can lead to an infection in your system, so we always recommend that you use some sort of quarantine system prior to adding them to your system.  If you have a fish only system and can medicate the whole system, you may not need a separate quarantine tank.  If you have a reef system that cannot be medicated, a good ultraviolet sterilization system should prevent any kind of disease outbreak.  We medicate our system for bacterial infections and protozoans, but because we don’’t always hold our fish for long periods of time, there is no way to be sure all the protozoan cysts have been killed.  A little bit of prevention will save you lots of trouble down the line.
