  • Description
  • The Popeye Catalufa Soldierfish is a very interesting and colorful fish. Popeye Catalufa Soldierfish are almost completely red in color except for their big black eyes. Popeye Catalufa Soldierfish also have fins that look comically large for their bodies. These attributes give the Popeye Catalufa Soldierfish a very cute appearance.

    Popeye Catalufa Soldierfish reach a maximum adult size of around 8 inches and need to be kept in tanks that are at least 90 gallons. Popeye Catalufa Soldierfish are peaceful fish and shouldn't bother too many other fish or coral in your tank. Popeye Catalufa Soldierfish will go after some smaller inverts, so if you'd like to add one to a reef tank, please make sure you only do with caution.

    Small groups of Popeye Catalufa Soldierfish can be added to the same tank if the tank is larger and there is lots of live rock for each fish to claim as their own territory. Popeye Catalufa Soldierfish will also benefit from having lots of rock in the tank since it'll give them small inverts to eat between feedings.

    Popeye Catalufa Soldierfish are carnivores and require a diet that is rich in meaty foods. Popeye Catalufa Soldierfish can be notoriously hard to get eating in home tanks, so using live feeder shrimp might be needed. After a Popeye Catalufa Soldierfish is eating, prepared foods like mysis and brine shrimp, high quality meaty frozen foods and small chunks of fresh seafood should keep your Popeye Catalufa Soldierfish healthy and thriving.
