Barred Soapfish also known as the Yellow Snapper or Two Banded Soapfish are found from the Maldives and India to Papua New Guinea, north to southern Japan, south to Lord Howe Island.

Livestock arrives in and out of stock very regularly, depending upon availability of the item from the source. The more rare and expensive items are often difficult to hold in stock, and can take time to source, so we generally require a deposit to locate and purchase the extremely rare items

The Barred Soapfish

An aquarium with plenty of live rock over hangs and caves is required due to its size and eating habits. It is an aggressive fish and may eat tank mates as well as crustaceans, However they will not harm coral. The mucous of the coat is toxic and deters other fish from trying to eat it.

The Barred Soapfish prefers a diet of meaty foods such as krill, shrimp, and other small fish.

Caution: This species can produce the skin toxin grammistin, which when stressed or injured may kill the fish in the aquarium.
