The Hogfish (Lachnolaimus maximus), is a species of wrasse native to the western Atlantic Ocean, with a range from Nova Scotia, Canada to northern South America, including the Gulf of Mexico. Hogfish are often found in large quantities around shallow reef areas. Hogfish feed on crabs and shellfish, so great care should be used when considering pet Hogfish for your aquarium. Pet Hogfish are very active swimmers and should be kept in aquariums with limited obstructions, giving them plenty of room to swim. Pet Hogfish (Lachnolaimus maximus) are the only member of the genus Lachnolaimus and all are protogynous hermaphrodites, meaning these tropical saltwater fish start out as female and then mature to become male. The gender change in pet Hogfish typically occurs around three years of age and about 14 inches in length.
