Coral Hogfish for Sale

Scientific Name: Bodianus mesothorax

Description:  The Coral Hogfish is a very hardy fish but one of the least friendly of the Hogfish genus. Will nip at bivalves, clams, and even eels.This Hogfish does best kept in relatively aggressive aquarium with larger species that will not allow this fish to bully them.  They are not reef compatable, and are considered aggressive as adults. An intermediate amount of care is needed to maintain the coral hawkfish. The recommedned minimum tank size is 70 gallons.

As juveniles, most Hogfish should be kept with non-aggressive and docile tankmates. 

As they grow they will become boisterous and harass these fish and should be moved to a more aggressive system. 

Diet: Will eat crustaceans, worms, snails and small clams. Feed a varied diet consisting of chunks of meaty foods. These foods include krill, raw table shrimp, squid, clam and mussel.

Size: 1.5-3.5 inches and matures to 10 inches in length
