Hawkfish are quite entertaining. They perch on rocks and coral reefs peering out looking for any nearby food. When they spot something they want, they will dart out, eat, and return to their perching spot. Hawkfish are peaceful community fish suitable for most environments. They are best kept without other Hawkfish. Their main diet is meaty seafoods, flakes, and pellets. Be aware that Hawkfish may eat any small shrimp they have access to.
