Husbandry

Lutjanus sanguineus (Cuvier, 1828)
Humphead snapper

Many Thank to Keith Wilson for the wonderful picture.

Adults inhabit coral and rocky reefs to depths of at least 100 m. Captured mainly at night on coral banks off Mafia Island (Tanzania) in 9 to 12 m and off Zanzibar in about 75 m. They are active at night feeding over sandy or rubble bottoms
