Husbandry

Adults fishes of Choerodon frenatus inhabit coral reefsa and rock reefn in northeastern Australia (New South Wales and Double Island Point, Townsvill Queensland).


A small reddish tuskfish overlain with olive brown above the lateral line anteriorly, sides pink, each scale sometimes with a pale blue to lavender spot, and blue diagonal stripes on the snout and below the eye, bases of canine teeth Juveniles are similar to adults.

The specific name frenatus is apparently from the Latin frenum meaning “bridle” or “rein”, in reference to the halter-like or bridle-like blue lines on the head.
