Purple Tilefish also known as the Purple Sand Tilefish are found around the Philippines south to Indonesia east to Solomon Islands.

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 Purple Tilefish has an attractive solid lilac-purple body colour with darker crimson-red markings highlighting a v-shape on the tail.

It requires an aquarium with plenty of swimming room, and at least 3 inches of mixed substrate for burrowing. It may be aggressive towards members of its own species but is peaceful with other fish.

The Purple Tilefish is known to spawn successfully in an aquarium.

The diet should include a variety of marine fish, crustacean flesh, and mysis shrimp, and it should be fed at least twice per day.
