Masuda's Hogfish, Bodianus masudai, otherwise known as the Masudai Hogfish or Peppermint Hogfish is a rare hogfish species endemic to Japan. Masuda's Hogfish is quite rare to be found available on the aquarium trade. It is hardy and makes a great addition to a fish only aquarium. Masuda's Hogfish has red and yellow stripes, somewhat resembling a peppermint. Masuda's Hogfish can grow up to 3 inches in captivity, should be kept in a tank of at least 40 gallons, and should be routinely (2-3 times a day) fed a carnivorous diet. Masuda's Hogfish should be kept as solitary individuals as they will become territorial with other members of their own species. They prefer to be housed in tanks with ample amounts of structured rock to simulate the reef environment and allow them plenty of places to hide. 

I've had Masuda's Hogfish for about a week and he's doing great. For the first few days I didn't see him at all, but now he makes appearances pecking at algae and darting in and out of the rocks and caves. Nice colors and appears healthy.
