  • Description
  • The Anchor Tusk (Choerodon anchorago), also known as the Orange-Spotted Tuskfish, is a captivating and unique fish found in the Indo-West Pacific region. Its distinctive appearance features a large, bulky body with a black back, white underbelly, and a series of vibrant orange spots along its sides. This wrasse is known for its prominent teeth, which resemble tusks and are used to crush the shells of its prey. The Anchor Tusk is a relatively large fish, reaching up to 20 inches in length, making it a suitable addition to larger aquariums.

    In the aquarium, the Anchor Tusk is a fascinating and active fish that is known for its curious and intelligent behavior. It is a carnivorous fish that requires a diet of meaty foods, including clams, mussels, shrimp, and other crustaceans. While generally peaceful towards other fish, it can be territorial towards conspecifics and other wrasses. Therefore, it is recommended to keep only one Anchor Tusk per tank. With proper care and a spacious aquarium, the Anchor Tusk can thrive and provide endless entertainment for its owner. Its unique appearance and engaging personality make it a captivating addition to any saltwater aquarium.
