Husbandry

Photoblepharon palpebratum (Boddaert, 1781)

The Eyelight fish (Photoblepharon palpebratum) is a species of flashlight fish. They are active at night, often feeding in large groups, and use the light to signal to other individuals, startle predators, and find small planktonic animals to feed on.

Well hidden in caves during the day and rarely seen. Usually observed at night
