Very special thanks for the first photo of Ostorhinchus tricinctus to Dr. Gerry R. Allen and Dr. Mark Erdmann, Australia.
The photo of this nocturnal cardinalfish was taken at the Philippines (Entalula Island, Bacuit Bay, Palawan) .

Ostorhinchus tricinctus is a benthic species and lives in clear lagoons with deep sand slopes, forming schools above remote rock or coral outcrops to 30 meters depth.
