The Harlequin Tuskfish requires a 75-gallon or larger aquarium with plenty of live rock and larger, aggressive tank mates. It should be one of the last additions to the aquarium as it may become territorial and harass any new additions. It is also important to note that if it is kept with a mate, the aquarium must be at least 125 gallons. Additionally, it is suggested to avoid adding mantis shrimp and bristleworms as they are likely to be eaten by the Harlequin Tuskfish. Ultimately, with the right environment, the Harlequin Tuskfish can be a vibrant addition to any home aquarium.

The Jansen Saddle Wrasse diet should include a variety of vitamin enriched frozen mysis shrimp, brine shrimp, and other meaty foods. In addition, a high quality marine flake and marine pellet food should be provided to ensure that they receive the essential nutrients they need. This will promote healthy growth and vibrant colouration. With this type of diet, the Jansen Saddle Wrasse can thrive in home aquariums. It is also important to supplement the diet with a variety of frozen and live foods. This will provide a balanced nutritional diet and help the fish to stay healthy and active.

The approximate purchase size for a small, medium, or large purchase is 3″, 4″, or 6″, respectively.
