The Helfrichi Firefish also known as Helfrich’s Dartfish is a reef safe species and a timid fish that prefers to live with non-boisterous tankmates. Similar to it’s cousins, the firefish, N. magnifica, and the Purple firefish, N.decora, the Helfrich’s Firefish is considered to be one of the holy grail of fish keeping in the saltwater aquarium hobby. The Helfrichi Firefish is found throughout the Indo-Pacific Region, where it lives along rock ledges and coral reefs. They are popular candidates for Nano tanks and larger peaceful community aquariums.
Helfrich’s Dartfish is very good at jumping, and requires a tight fitted tank to avoid any unnecessary accidents. It should not be combined with the Dottybacks, Damsels (including larger Anemonefish), Pygmy Angelfish, Hawkfish, Sand Perches and Wrasses.
Diet: Meaty foods, such as frozen cyclops, frozen fish eggs, preparations for marine carnivores and even flake food.
