This fish is not available very often to the aquarium hobbyists, the Geometric Pygmy Hawkfish is very colorful and active. It is a close relative to Anthias and Groupers than Hawkfish, but is associated with Hawks because of its overall shape and behavior. It will not eat corals, it may be seen resting on and moving from area to area. It may bother small shrimp and snails, so it should be introduced to a reef aquarium with caution. The Geometric Pygmy Hawk only grows to about 2" in length.
