Looks like I might get my Lyretail Hogfish. I had a couple of stores looking and one found this earlier this morning at one of their suppliers. It is 5-6", so a good size. I'm going to get it this Friday if all goes as planned.

Love your Harlequin Tusk, Todd!

That is exciting about being able to find the Lyretail Hogfish you've been looking for, I bet it is super frustrating to look for a species and to not be able to find it. They are so unique, I love their shape/color/pattern.

Todd's 240g Build

I've wanted one for a long time. I've never had to look this long for a fish, so hopefully it is healthy. They sent me a couple more pics...

The Tusk is doing great. Eats like a pig. It kinda hangs out on one side of the tank away from the other fish, but then cruises over in between them, so it's not like it is afraid of them.

My friend was supposed to pick it up yesterday, but changed it to today. Talk about bad timing! 😢

Look at it this way, it's better that he decided to try his luck at carpet surfing before you paid for him rather than after

I had already paid for it, but they are going to try and find me another one. I think they had it in a smaller tank and it probably felt it needed more room.

It's no Lyretail Hogfish, but I added the Rusty Angel that I got a few weeks back last night. He is hanging out in the rocks a lot, but was thinking about trying to eat. Every time he would come out, one of the larger fish would swim by and he'd dart back into the rocks.

1. I am so happy that your Tusk is eating well/doing great!
2. So sorry about the Hogfish.
3. I love your new Rusty Angel, they are such unique fish!
