Axilspot Hogfish (Bodianus axillaris) is also known as the Coral Pigfish, is endemic to the waters of Indonesia and Eastern Asia. Juveniles are a black or brown color with nine solid white spots, while adults have a red anterior, white anterior and yellow caudal fin. They feed on a variety of animals, including small fish, shrimp, crabs and krill. They require a carnivorous diet consisting of mysis or other crustaceans; larger ones may enjoy silversides or bait fish. Though labeled reef safe, they will predate on cleanup crews and other crustaceans or small reef fish, so they should be housed in predator reefs or fish-only systems. They reach a maximum size of 8 inches and should be kept in a tank with at least 90 gallons.
