The Anchor Tusk is a very unique fish that is highly underrated. Like Harlequins, Anchor Tusks generally do not bother corals, so they can be added to reef aquariums. On the other hand, they will not hesitate to eat a cleanup crew, so be prepared to replace snails, crabs and even urchins more frequently. They look mean (look at the fangs) but aren't really all that aggressive. In a large tank it will be just fine as a community fish. On the flip side, this is a fish that is likely to be bullied if added to aquariums with established aggressive fish. Be aware that this species commonly enjoys rearranging rockwork and sand beds, which can cause rocks to topple over. They reach a max size of about 20 inches and should be housed in an aquarium with plenty of swimming space. The Anchor Tusk is found in the Indo-West Pacific inhabiting reef flats and lagoon reefs up to 25 meters deep. The Anchor Tusk will go through color and body shape change from juvenile to adults.

ACCLIMATION: Avoid exposing new aquatic life to bright lights after opening the box. Turn off aquarium lights prior to floating aquatic life. Allow the sealed bag with your new fish to float in your aquarium for at least 15 minutes (but no longer than one hour) to ensure the water in the bag matches the temperature in your aquarium. A bacteria booster addition can assist with the addition of new aquatic life. Petco offers free water testing in store to determine if your water is safe for the addition of new aquatic life. DIET: A well-balanced diet consists of a variety of flakes, pellets, freeze-dried and frozen foods, depending on the species. FEEDING: Feed sparingly and no more than fish can eat in 1-2 minutes. Overfeeding can quickly foul the water, especially in smaller aquariums.
