The Lyretail Hawkfish is commonly known as the Pink Hawkfish or Swallowtail Hawkfish. It is mostly found feeding on plankton in the water column, which is similar to anthias behavior unlike its own family, which is known to perch more than swimming. The Lyretail Hawkfish can be identified by the presence of numerous short filaments at the tip of each dorsal spine. With its vivid colored pattern, the Lyretail Hawkfish makes a beautiful and stunning addition to any reef tank. It grows up to 6 inches in captivity, and may be grouped with other Lyretail Hawkfish if are introduced to the aquarium at the same time. Although it might eat small fishes and shrimps, the Lyretail Hawkfish can be considered an excellent reef inhabitant under the right conditions. It should be provided with a variety of marine meats, frozen preparations, and live feeder shrimp for its continued good health. The Lyretail Hawkfish thrives well in a temperature range of 75-82 degrees Fahrenheit and in a tank of minimum 20 gallon. It lives among the tentacles or at the base of some larger sea anemones, therefore addition of a sea anemone is encouraged but not necessary. The Lyretail Hawkfish might behave aggressively towards passive fishes that are introduced afterwards.
