Great I keep up on my tanks and everything but It bothers me when fish are just really fragile. Ya definitely with that type of money on a fish it's gonna be exactly what I want or nothing

Yes they change colors fast too. Its pretty awesome. I think they only do it alot when stressed though. Check out the videos on these guys. They are pretty pricey though. Here's a video of one changing colors.

wow that tilefish is awesome.
Also I would go with the harlequin tuskfish. Make sure it's from my wonderful home of australia, not indonesia.lol. The Aussie ones have much better colouration

true that, but Lucky me, because I live where these beauties are caught around a 4-5" would cost maybe $60 A full grown 10" about $110.

You guys are lucky in america because most of the other marine fish in the aquarium industry are a lot cheaper over there than here, same goes for freshwater. Like a 3" blue diamond discus would cost $60 here and it's like what 30-40bucks over there. Ohhh well that's just the way it is. Lol

We paid 200.00 for our tusk. All the livestock from down under is pricey, but my next purchase will be some Australian acan lords for the reef tank.


Good luck.
