Out of Stock


The Threespot Squirrelfish (Sargocentron cornutum) is red with silver-white stripes and a black spot at the base of the tail and on the anal fins.


These fish are mostly nocturnal and spend most daylight hours in the shadows of rock crevices. They are schooling in many cases, but are also comfortable being housed in single numbers. Squirrels are predatory and they will quickly snatch up small fish and inverts like shrimp and crabs, so consider tankmates carefully. They are safe for reef environments and make interesting additions to reefs free of crustaceans. Feed Squirrelfish frozen or live shrimp, crabs, or other meaty foods.
