Notes: To be successful with the Skunk Tilefish you will need at least a 50-gallon with plenty of swimming room, and at least 3 inches of a sandy substrate for burrowing.
The Skunk Tilefish is also an excellent jumper, so a tight fitting canopy is a must.
The diet should include a variety of meaty foods such as chopped pieces of marine fish and shrimp, and frozen mysis or brine shrimp. It is ideal to feed this species at least twice per day.
