The Red Emperor Snapper is a compact and powerful fish with a large head. With its rusty red body color and three thick broad white vertical bands, it makes a beautiful fish in the home aquarium. The Red Emperor Snapper has a total of 11 dorsal spines and 15 dorsal soft rays. Being a large fish that grows up to 14 inches in the wild, it needs a large well-lit tank not less than 55 gallons with plenty of hiding spots and also plenty of open swimming room. The Red Emperor Snapper thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit and pH of 8.1-8.4. The Emperor Red Snapper is a carnivore that can be fed a mixed diet of shrimp, squid, clams, fish, and other meaty fares suitable for carnivores, as well as marine algae and vitamin-enriched herbivore foods. It is commonly referred to as a Sebae Snapper. The Red Emperor Snapper grows pretty fast and eats ornamental crustaceans in the aquarium that makes it unsuitable for a reef tank. As a juvenile, it likes to school with other Emperor Snappers, but as an adult, it should be alone in the tank.
