The Redlined Tilefish, Hoplolatilus marcosi, also known as the Marcos Tilefish, Skunk Tilefish, and Redstripe Tilefish, is a rare fish for the home aquarium. The Redlined Tilefish have an exotic body form found in very few aquarium species. They are intelligent fish that have interesting patterning and behaviors. Though the Redlined Tilefish may be dubbed as a fish difficult to keep, if proper instructions are followed this highly-prized ornamental fish can thrive. They should be kept in tanks of at least 60 gallons with a tightly closed lid to prevent the Redlined Tilefish from jumping out. Low and moderate lighting is best. The floor of the aquarium should have at least one large sandy area with a depth of 6 inches for the Redlined Tilefish, and try not to disturb any burrow they have created. They can be added to tanks in pairs, and should usually be the first fish introduced into a tank environment. They may be difficult to feed at first, try live foods and gradually ween onto clams or other sessile meaty foods. If many of these precautions are met, the Redlined Tilefish can be a long-lived and endearing fish to have in your aquarium.
