The Pygmy Rooster Waspfish is a captivating and uncommon addition to the hobby. With its stunning red and white coloration, this fish stands out as a beautiful specimen. Growing up to 3 inches in size, it will thrive in an aquarium of at least 30 gallons, providing ample space and plenty of rocks for hiding and perching.
As an aggressive fish, it's essential to avoid housing the Pygmy Rooster Waspfish with smaller tankmates, as they may be seen as potential prey. They can be kept in mated pairs, but care should be taken to monitor their interactions closely.
Their diet should consist of a variety of foods, such as mysis, brine shrimp, and other meaty or live options. When initially introduced into the aquarium, they may require target feeding with live foods to ensure they acclimate well to their new environment. With proper care and attention, the Pygmy Rooster Waspfish can be a fascinating and rewarding species to keep in the aquarium.
