The Red Diana Hogfish is commonly referred to as the Diana Hogfish, Diana's Hogfish, Red & Gold Hogfish, Spotted Hogfish or the Spotted Hogfish. With its reddish-orange colored body along with white spots on the back, the Diana's Hog makes a captivating addition to any tank. It needs a tank of not less than 50 gallon along with plenty of hiding places. The Diana's Hog is very aggressive and should not be housed with smaller, docile fish to avoid any aggression. Its diet should include meaty foods such as snails, worms, mussels, and small fish. The Diana's Hog thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit and pH of 8.1-8.4. The juveniles are easily identified from the matured ones by the difference in body color. The Diana's Hog readily adapts to the conditions in captivity. However, once it adjusts itself totally to the tank or aquarium conditions; it poses some threat to the newer fishes introduced into the same tank or aquarium. We recommend you to keep this fish singly, the reason being, two Diana?s hogfish inevitably fight for the control of the tank. The Diana's Hog is very territorial in nature, but are very easy to feed. The tank must be decorated with artificial caves and rocks; as these rock structures simulate their artificial coral reef environment.

Great community aquarium fish.These Wrasse serve the reef as cleaners in the wild and do well in the home aquarium. They should be provided with ample swimming room.The family of Hogfish are members of the Wrasse family, but because of their different shapes they have been given their own name. These fish are known for their rooting behavior, which lends to their name Hogfish. They will sometimes burrow beneath the sand when frightened.
