• Lethrinops marginatus (Round Head Red Top) (Rare)

Males have a more rounded head than other Lethrinops types. The upper portion of their body is turquoise with some red mixed into it. The lower portion of their body is yellow. They have red and grey-blue on the dorsal fin with a white upper edge. Their tail is blue with red mixed through it. This is a rare type of Lethrinops in the hobby. 

See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5tHvjUYfUPc for how this fish looks when grown. 

Last Count 03/28/2019. Next count due 03/19/2019. 

Base price is a 2.5' Male.

75 gallon or larger tank recommended for single male mixed tanks.

20 gallon or larger tank recommended for breeder groups. 

Best mix for breeding is one male with five to six females. 

These fish are being grown out from smaller sizes obtained from my wholesaler. Sometimes I may be able to add some 3" or larger males from my wholesaler as well.
