Masuda's Hogfish

Masuda's Hogfish

Also known as a Peppermint Hogfish, or Shima-kitsunebera (Japan).

Relatively new to the industry, the beautiful Masuda's Hogfish is a splendid addition to a more active fish-only tank. The Masuda's Hogfish curiously darts around the tank, making it stand out in a fish tank. This species does best in tanks that do not contain very passive fish. This fish is very quick to acclimate to captivity. Although this fish can reach upwards of 5 inches in length in the wild, captive specimens will normally reach an average of 3 inches.

Please note that this Hogfish will eat crabs, snails, and other motile invertebrates.
