harlequin tusk

  1. General Reef Discussion
    So my LFS just got a little harlequin tusk. I believe it's an indo pacific, but just want to check. I would really prefer an Austrailan over the Indo pacific because their color is much more bold. Is this guy a indo pacific or an Austrailan? This guy is small. Also I didn't take this picture, my...

    I have an ~8" Harlequin tusk in my mixed reef tank and have recently been asked to let others know how I do it. In short they are great with corals! They are beautiful fast hardy fish that are very disease resistant. However please keep in mind that they have those "tusks" for a reason. You...

    Hey all. Hoping to put in my signature fish this weekend.. a 2 1/2 inch harlequin tusk. I've done all the research I can on the fish. And I know they are risky to even acclimate... But its the only fish I really want in my tank. I was hoping maybe smeone has had success acclimating a tusk and...

    I have my eyes set on a beautiful australian harlequin tusk, but I am scared of getting it, as I'm afraid he will eat my clean up crew. Has anybody ever had success, with keeping this fish, in their reef? I dont keep shrimp, if that makes a difference.

    I recently purchased a Harlequin Tusk and can't seem to find too much info on this guy. He is a beautiful fish but he is spastic. He darts up, down, and all around my 125. He is definately freaking out my tank mates. A clown trigger, humuhumu, dogface puffer, and about 50 chromis who are all...

    Has anyone had the privilege of keeping a fish like this one at the link at the bottom? It's called a Harlequin Tusk, my girl friend saw it online and she thinks it's the most beautiful fish and so do I, it's just godly exspensive. Tell me what you know about this fish anyone, thanks...

    we have some really great fish and corals in right now. I'd say the highlights are an aussie harlequin tusk, fisher's angel, gold saddle rabbitfish, a majestic angel, a trio of pygmy angels that play nice together, and an rbta with a pair of ora host percs. also got in a "shipment" of LE sps...
  11. Non Coral Dominated Systems
    We just bought a harlequin tuskfish and a squirrelfish. They are currently in QT, however as I am reading more and more I'm starting to think that these fish were not a good choice. The tank is a 90 gallon FOWLR housing 1 Hippo Tang, 1 Maroon Clown, 2 Banggaii cardinal, 1 blood shrimp, 1...

    WIth a nod to the favorite blenny thread. WHat is your favorite fish? For me it would probably be a Jawfish. Either the Bluespot or Pearly.

    I am looking at getting some aggressive species of fish for my reef tank. I keep mainly LPS and Tridacnid clams. As of right now, I have no fish in my tank. I really like the Miniatus Grouper, Harlequin Tusk, 8-Line Wrasse, and some of the more aggressive larger wrasses (Bananna, Bird...

    Well the tank is a 75g. I always wanted a porcupine puffer and since I found a smallish one that looks really healthy I picked him up. This guy is about 3in long I would guess. He was eating in the store and I think he's eating here... he goes crazy for food I think he's eating some but a...

    going to be setting up a 65gal fowlr in the near future. going to be using a css65 protein skimmer, probably quite a bit of br/lr. whats the preferred substrate for fowlr tanks? dsb? ssb? cc? kinda scared because ive found fish to be quite a bit harder than corals to keep healthy and happy...

    here are the two new members to my 240 gallon, A clown Trigger and a Harlequin Tusk Wrasse
  18. General Reef Discussion
    After posting some questions about FOWLR's and doing alot more reading and research, I'm trying to decide the best to way to set one up. I'm considering either a 55, 65, or 75 gallon tank. After reading about several of the fish only species that I mentioned in my other thread, there are alot...

    I want to get like 1 or 2 fish for my 37 gallon tank (24"x18"). I also want to get fish that will not take food from my corals, so clowns, chromis and the like are out. I will have a big enough skimmer to accomidate a messy eater. I was thinking a mandarin or harlequin tusk or ??? Idont know...
