The Falco Hawkfish is named due to its habit of perching on coral, from which it swoops out and snags its prey. Generally, many of the hawkfish is considered an unsociable fish for its aggressive or predatory nature, unlike this Falco Hawkfish. The falco hawkfish is considered the least aggressive and predatory hawkfish. The Falco Hawkfish is a personable little fish that can be considered by neophyte and experienced aquarist as well. Due to its durability and beautiful color pattern, the Falco Hawkfish makes a wonderful fish in any tank. It might get chased and nipped at by dottybacks, other hawkfish, damselfish and larger sand perches, so it should not be housed with these fishes. The aquarium should contain many hiding places, and live stony and soft coral colonies. The Falco Hawkfish may jump from an aquarium so it should be kept in a tank with a covered lid over it to avoid any unnecessary accidents. It thrives well in a temperature range of 75-80 degrees Fahrenheit, and grows up to 2 inches in size. Being a passive fish, it makes a great addition to any reef tank and a reef safe organism as well.

Falco Hawkfish
This guy was roaming around the rocks and exploring the moment we put him in. Very active and adorable. He shares rock perches with the lawnmower blenny. We have lots of small crabs and snails and he hasn't given any of them a second glance. The amphipods on the other hand...I guess they're too tasty to resist. ;)
