Husbandry

Rüppell, 1835

Known from inshore continental waters
Indian Ocean: Red Sea south to northern Natal, South Africa and east to India
Text source: Fishbase

“The red glow is likely a form of private communication or an attraction signal, Nico Michiels said, though he doesn’t have clear proof yet. Because the light is coming from the fish themselves and not filtering down from the surface, the red glow remains visible at depth and is easily seen at close distances only.”

“Fluorescence occurs when light is absorbed at one wavelength and then re-emitted at another nearly immediately. In the case of the red fluorescence, these fish absorb light at blue-green wavelengths and re-emit it at red.”
