The family of Hawkfish are a group of bottom dwelling fish that lack swim bladders. This causes these fish to find areas of coral, sea fans, and rock where they can perch and wait for food to float by. They have a curious nature and their eyes will usually follow you wherever you go.Provide rockwork for this hawkfish to perch on. This hawkfish will also perch on coral heads, and may cause slight damage to the coral from resting on it.In its natural habitat this fish eats small shrimp and crabs, but also may eat small fish. Don't be fooled by the small size of this fish, its mouth opens wider than you think! Keep with fish of similar size or larger.Offer enriched mysis, frozen carnivore diet, finely chopped shrimp and clam.
