Freckled Hawkfish

Freckled Hawkfish

Also known as the Forster Hawkfish, Gesproete valkvis (South Africa - Afrikaans), Black Side Hawkfish, Bika vatu (Fiji) or Hilu pili-ko'a.

The Freckled Hawkfish is one of the largest Hawkfish available, and is perfect for an aggressive tank. As with other Hawkfish, this species swoops down to attack its prey, similar to Hawks and other actual birds of prey. The Freckled Hawkfish should be the only Hawkfish in its tank due to bullying. However, multiple Hawkfish can be kept in exceptionally gigantic fish tanks. This species needs ledges to perch on as well as crevices and caves for hiding.
