Often, the Pixy Hawkfish gets confused with the Cirrhitichthys aprinus, which is also called as the Spotted Hawkfish. The Pixy Hawkfish is a hardy and semi-aggressive fish that gets along well with the inhabitants in a community fish aquarium. With its attractive body markings, the Pixy Hawkfish makes a great and beautiful addition to any tank. It should be kept in a tank not less than 20 gallon, however, in a larger aquarium the Pixy Hawkfish can be kept very easily with a variety of semi-aggressive community fish species. It might turn predatory towards small gobies, firefishes, small wrasses etc, and should not be housed with them, especially in a smaller aquarium. The Pixy Hawkfish needs lot of plenty place with rock ledges for it to perch on, and caves and crevices to retreat when frightened or sleeping. Therefore, we recommend you to have a well-established tank along with live rocks and rubble before adding it to it. The Pixy Hawkfish is mainly carnivorous and its food includes invertebrates, meaty foods, frozen and flaked meaty preparations along with feeder shrimps. It thrives well in a temperature range of 70-78 degree Fahrenheit and pH of 8.1-8.4. The Pixy Hawkfish grows up to 4 inches, and though it has the propensity to eat small ornamental crustaceans such as small shrimps, but will not harm any other invertebrates in the tank, therefore, it is considered reef safe but with caution.
