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.
