A nocturnal schooling fish, striped squirrelfish are an interesting looking, brilliantly colored fish that can be a peaceful addition to your saltwater aquarium. They have characteristic large eyes that help them see in low light and a spiny dorsal fin that make it easily identifiable among other fish. It is so named because it can make a squirrel-like noise with its swim bladder.
