Snooty Maori Wrasse also known as the Fire Tusk are found from East Africa to the Marquesan and Society islands, north to Taiwan, south to the southern Great Barrier Reef and the Austral 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 Snooty Maori Wrasse are a brownish red to bright red with small white spots.

While the Snooty Maori Wrasse can grow rather large, they are generally a shy species and should only be housed in an appropriately large aquarium with other non-aggressive fishes to avoid being bullied. They are known to move sand around in search of food and will eat hard shell inverts and sometimes small fish.

The Snooty Maori Wrasse is commonly found roaming alone in lagoons and inner reefs, along reef edges and rubble piles, and can often be seen resting on the sea bed. Feed a prepared plankton diet to mimic their common natural diet.
