Skunk Tilefish

Males and females are both 4.7 in. Fairy Wrasses and territorially aggressive species such as Surgeons may cause conflict. Minimum tank size is 66 gal. for one, 120 gal. for a pair. This fish does best when housed in a pair or a group.

Found in the Western Central Pacific, this fish is difficult to keep in an aquarium, and novices shouldn’t attempt it. Skunk Tilefish are not rare but are not always found, so when they become available they are usually snatched up quickly.

Skunk Tilefish eat a varied diet of meaty foods, several times a day. They are prone to jumping out of their tanks. To prevent this, turn lights on and off gradually and keep a night light on at night. A tight fitting canopy is also vital.
