Husbandry

Tilodon sexfasciatus also known as the Moonlighter is also commonly referred to as the six banded coral fish and butterfish. It is found in the cooler waters of southern Australia and is distributed from Perth in Western Australia around the south to Port Phillip Bay in Victoria.

The Moonlighter can be identified by its banded pattern that generally consists of 6 dark black lines running down the body that includes a small band at the base of its tail. It has a yellow tinge around the base of its dorsal fin. There is generally a large black spot at the rear of the dorsal find but this can vary between juveniles and adults.

Juveniles of Tilodon sexfasciatus are generally found on shallow coastal reefs and can often be found under piers and jetties. Adults can generally be seen in pairs on deeper coastal rocky reefs. The Moonlighter grows to a maximum length of approximately 40 cm.
