Red Emperor Snappers are from the waters of the Indian and Pacific Oceans. Red Emperor Snappers grow to around 2 and half feet at full length, and need to be kept in an aquarium of at least 180 gallons in size. Red Emperor Snappers can be kept with others when they are younger, but as they grow older they will need to be kept alone in the aquarium. The Red Emperor Snapper is a carnivore and should be fed meaty foods such as chopped meat, fish, shrimp and scallops to ensure that it maintains proper health.
