    ive bee watching this for a week or so. Looks pretty. I’m also wanting to do fish I haven’t had before. Pretty large tank, that currently houses a 6” Harlequin Tusk Fish.

    Do you like this fish?
    Pretty or ugly?
    Not good to mix with current tusk?
    Should be fine?
    Etc....

    Share your opinion and thoughts.

    System won’t let me post a picture. It is a 6” Purple Eyebrow Tuskfish on DD. Link below

    Some of those Purple Eyebrow Tuskfish are gorgeous!
    But you’re more than likely going to have issues with keeping two tusks in the same tank. Their behavior characteristics are still similar and they would eventually not tolerate one another. Sorry.
