The Lyretail Hogfish is one of the hardiest and most docile of all the large hogfish. Make no mistake, as this guy gets larger it cannot be housed with invertabrates as it will eat everything that fits in its mouth.
The best foods for hogfish are a good carnivore pellet along with frozen chopped krill, squid, clams and mussels.
While the Spanish Hogfish is young it can be kept in a reef type tank however it will soon need to be banished to a fish only or FOWLR system. This fish will get very aggressive so make sure it is not housed with timid fish. It will eventually eat anything it can get in its mouth. Now, this fish is easy to keep and very beautiful.
Feed any good carnivore type dry food and hogfish will generally take any frozen food as well.
