Harlequin Tuskfish

$349.99 CAD

Choerodon fasciatus

The Harlequin Tuskfish is a beautiful member of the wrasse family. These colourful and personality-filled fish often become quick aquarium favourites for their outgoing behaviours. These are currently juveniles and will end up growing to a size of up to 10" so they require a larger aquarium and typically prefer aquariums with a good amount of rubble or rockwork. These juveniles are bred in Bali, but the parents are from Australian stock with a more bright red coloration.

The Harlequin Tuskfish is not a "reef safe" fish as they tend to go after clean-up crews, invertebrates, or small fish. Typically semi-aggressive in adulthood, they do best in fish-only aquariums with similarly sized fish. When they reach adulthood they have vertical red-orange and white striping with hints of blue accents as well as large blue "Tusk" teeth used for crunching small invertebrates. They are feeding entirely on prepared diets and prefer a more meaty diet.
