The Crescent-Tail Hogfish (Bodianus sepiacauda) is also known as the Candy Cane or Pacific Red-Stripe Hogfish. Their body is a vibrant red with horizontal white stripes with a crescent design on their caudal fin. They feed on a variety of benthic invertebrates, including polychaete worms, copepods and mollusks. They search sand beds for detritus and other crustaceans and are very good at hiding among sand and rocks. They should be kept in a well established aquarium with a lot of space to swim and plenty of live rock. They are known for jumping, so a tight lid with minimal openings is recommended.
