The Skunk Tilefish is alternatively called the Red Stripe Tilefish, Red-lined Tilefish or Red Back Tilefish. Its scientific name is Hoplolatilus Marcosi, and it’s from the Malacanthidae family. It’s an aesthetically pleasing fish with an elongated white body, that has a conspicuous red line from the snout to the tail along its lateral line, on both sides. Furthermore, its eyes, body, and fins have a tint of blue that complements the red line and contributes to its beauty. It can grow to be around 4 – 6 inches long.

The Skunk Tilefish can usually be found in pairs in the deeper sandy rubble parts of the Indo-Pacific or Tropical Western Pacific, at 18 to 80 meters above the sea level. They are innately carnivorous and enjoy copepods, amphipods, assorted larvae, tiny crustaceans, and alternative zooplankton found within their habitat. They are friendly and will peacefully coexist with other fish that will not prey on them. They can normally be found near the surface of the water but will retreat to hiding in crevices when threatened or provoked.
