Product Description

Product Description

Hawkfish are hardy and semi-aggressive fish that get along well with the inhabitants in a community fish aquarium. They should be kept in a tank not less than 20 gallon, however, in a larger aquarium the Hawkfish can be kept very easily with a variety of semi-aggressive community fish species. It might turn predatory towards small gobies, firefishes, small wrasses etc, and should not be housed with them, especially in a smaller aquarium. Hawkfish needs lot of plenty place with rock ledges for them to perch on, and caves and crevices to retreat when frightened or sleeping. Therefore, we recommend you to have a well-established tank along with live rocks and rubble before adding. Hawkfish are mainly carnivorous and their food includes invertebrates, meaty foods, frozen and flaked meaty preparations along with feeder shrimps. They thrive well in a temperature range of 70-78 degree Fahrenheit and pH of 8.1-8.4. Hawkfish usually grow up to 6 inches or more, and though they have the propensity to eat small ornamental crustaceans such as small shrimps, they will not harm any other invertebrates in the tank. They are therefore considered reef safe, but with caution.
