The red cornetfish is a slow swimmer, but can move very quickly when hunting. One of its hunting strategies is hiding behind fatter fish in order to surprise its prey. It can also swim vertically (straight up and down) and hide in plants. It can be found in coral reefs swimming over coral, sandy bottoms, or seagrass. When it is not hunting, it can be found floating and resting near the bottom of the reef.
