From what I have found, the entire genus is more or less alike, so the harlequin tusk and this fish should be similar

This is not a current fish for sale, but I saw this while surfing. What a pair.

If this is me, I would get the Harlequin Tusk. Much better looking fish. I guess that is why they are so much more popular.
If you have to put up with the down side of a large predator in your tank, you should get the upside too.

Just do a quick search online and I'm sure you'll find some information. Or give them a call and see if they can provide you with anything additional. Their customer service is terrific.

Another thing to consider is that many times the DD fish species can also be found on LA. So just check there to see the species' care requirements. I know this isn't always the case.

It is amazing what the regulations in Hawaii are doing to the cost of fish. Cute little guy, if I won $500 on a scratch off I would probably buy it. Darn I don't buy lotto tickets, shoot.

Unfortunately I lost her with everything else when my tank crashed about 2 years ago while on vacation. I will be getting one again but not willing to pay $1600 for one when I can get one for about 1/3 of that

Especially since besides where they are collected, I canít seem to tell a difference between them

LA is not the only supplier that advertises dark yellow as orange. My LFS called me one day and said we can get you an orange tail Emperor for $200. Of course I said go for it. It came in as a dark yellow not orange. I have seen orange tail emperors from redsea, xmas islands, and africa. But to me it has to have an orange tail to be advertised, not just where it was collected with a chance of getting an orange tail

Not a which is better than question - by no means. But I wanted to ask what is the difference than say LA/DD? I typically do not order many fish online let alone local but is there anything different they do or is it just their supplier? My last order from LA was super and I do have a regal on my wish list...

Id consider BlueZoo, LA and NYAquatic to be broadly equivalent, with DD a step above for rarer fish. NYA is appealing to me because it is local.

DD is good because they one get better fish than LA, plus you get to see what the fish looks like. NY Aquatics many times on expensive fish will have pictures of the actual fish and will send you pictures if you ask. LA and DD have the best money back policy.
