Husbandry

Randall & Ben-Tuvia, 1983

Cephalopholis oligosticta could be a colourful eyespot in each tank, its body has a orange-red colour and is covered with plenty blue dots and its pectoral fins have some blue stripes.

This hind needs a diet that consists mainly of small fishes and some small crustaceans.

Best left in the wild.
