Hawaiian Hawkfish

Hawaiian Hawkfish (aka Blood Red Hawkfish)

The Hawaiian Hawkfish or Blood Red Hawkfish is known to eat smaller tankmates. Ideally, all other fish should be larger and semi-aggressive to prevent the Hawkfish from attacking them. Crustaceans are part of its diet, so any type of shrimp or crab will not survive with the Hawaiian Hawkfish. As with other Hawkfish, this species hunts by perching high above its prey, swooping down to attack.
