Red Squirrel Fish are originally from the waters of the Pacific Ocean and around the Hawaiian Islands. Red Squirrelfish grow to around 7 inches at full length and should be kept in an aquarium of at least 75 gallons in size to provide plenty of swimming and living room for them. Red Squirrel Fish are peaceful members of the aquarium and should only be kept with other peaceful fish in the community aquarium. Red Squirrel Fish are carnivores, and should be fed a diet with brine shrimp, pellet foods, and other meaty preparations to maintain best health. These fish are a bit difficult to care for and should only be kept by the experienced aquarium owner.
