  • Description
  • The Frost Fin Cardinal (Ostorhinchus hoevenii), also known as the Frostfin Cardinalfish, is a delicate and eye-catching fish native to the Indo-Pacific region. This small species is characterized by its translucent body with a yellow or brown hue, a yellow face, and, most notably, white tips on its dorsal fin, giving it its common name. Found in reefs and lagoons, Frost Fin Cardinals are often seen hovering near crinoids, sponges, and anemones, using these structures as both shelter and hunting grounds.

    In the aquarium, Frost Fin Cardinals are peaceful community fish that do best in groups of three or more. They are relatively hardy and can thrive in a well-maintained tank with plenty of live rock and hiding places. As carnivores, their diet should consist primarily of meaty foods like brine shrimp, mysis shrimp, and finely chopped seafood. Their small size and peaceful nature make them a suitable addition to nano reefs and community tanks, adding a touch of elegance and movement to the underwater landscape. With proper care and attention, these captivating fish will thrive and provide endless enjoyment for their keepers.
