Characteristics & Compatibility:
This hardy Hawkfish is a great choice for beginners. It should not be kept with smaller, less aggressive fish. It will spend most of its time sitting on the substrate, rather than on the rock and decorations in a tank. It is a very quick species, darting across the tank to capture its food.
Diet & Feeding:
Feed meaty foods including marine fish, crustacean flesh, Mysid Shrimp and frozen preparations daily.
