    Hi guys

    Are all fire fish the same to keep? Nemateleotris helfrichi and the decora?

    does any one have experience in keeping the helfrichi?

    Thanks;)

    N. decora and N. helfrichi are deeper water species, so will prefer lower lighting. Otherwise pretty much the same as N. magnifica. You'll definitely want a covered tank for all species though...they're jumpers.
