The Harlequin Tusk, Lienardella fasciata, is a wonderfully unique aquarium fish. They exhibit the most vibrant orange colors found on any fish and beautiful white vertical striping. Neon blue and green stripes can often be found across their faces. Harlequin Tusks possess large teeth that they use to crush small crustacean prey. 
Like other unique large fish, there are some specifications that should be heeded while keeping a Harlequin Tusk. They should usually be kept in a fish-only aquarium with only one Tusk per tank. 

Very cool fish! They can b fairly succeptible to changes in water quality so be careful about that. Otherwise they seem to b pretty hardy, and mine have always acclimated & started eating very quickly. They're not particularly aggressive, even tho they look like they are. No reef tanks tho! They'll tear up any shelled inverts, including tridacna clams, and snails(if large enough) many snails have really thick shells-astrea&turbo, but even tiny tuskfish will eat any shrimp&crabs
