Orange Dotted Tuskfish also known as the Orange Cheek Tuskfish, Yellowcheek Tuskfish or Anchor Tuskfish are found Sri Lanka eastward to French Polynesia, north to the Ryukyu Islands, south to New Caledonia.

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 Orange Dotted Tuskfish body is greenish to grey with underside of head, chest and lower portion of sides white or bluish, a wedge-shaped white band extending upward onto back behind pectoral fins, a large rectangular white saddle situated dorsally on caudal peduncle extending forward below rear of dorsal fin the head is speckled with bright orange dots.

They have teeth or tusks used to crunch invertebrates. These fish are typically shy when at a small size, but will in time gain personality and confidence as they mature.

A 125 gallon or larger aquarium with plenty of live rock for hiding places and moderately aggressive, active fish such as Angels, Tangs, and smaller Triggers is an acceptable environment. Keep only one specimen per tank. Although they will not bother corals, they may eat any small crustacean such as snails or crabs.

The Orange Dotted Tuskfish diet should include vitamin enriched frozen mysis shrimp, vitamin enriched frozen brine shrimp, and other meaty foods along with a high quality marine flake and marine pellet food.
