Husbandry

Pempheris affinis (McCulloch 1911)

Pempheris affinis, better known as the Blacktip Bullseye, is commonly seen by divers in caves and under ledged during the day in the marine waters of southern Queensland to southern New South Wales/Australia. Lives on rocky reefs down to depths of at least 30m.

Pempheris affinis has a deep compressed body that is covered with small ctenoid scales. It has a very large eye and a large obliquely-angled mouth. His body is pale grey dorsally and yellow on the sides. The tips of the dorsal and caudal fins are black, as is the margin of the anal fin. As juvenil they are transparent.

Pempheris affinis is nocturnal and feeds on zooplankton.
