The Harlequin Tusk is discovered from within the reefs of the Australian and Indian Oceans. This fish has one of the most fantastic colourations, which involves white and orange vertical stripes that are highlighted in electric blue. Additionally, another unique attributes it holds is bright blue teeth that looks amazing whilst it eats.
This fish requires at least a 400 litre aquarium full of hiding places and caves within the live rock. It is a very aggressive and active eater and therefore should be housed with other active fish such as angels, triggers and puffers. This is a great fish for a reef tank as it should not nip at any of the corals, however will most certainly eat clean up crew members.
Despite their flamboyant colourings, this fish can actually be quite shy whilst they are juveniles, however as they begin to mature they will start to show a lot more personality and unique behaviour patterns.
The Harlequin Tusk thrives on a varied diet. This diet should include most meaty foods, such as brine and mysis shrimp, as well as a range of pellets and flakes.
