The Spanish Hogfish can grow to be 12" and requires a tank not less than 150 gallons.
The Spanish Hogfish is a very hardy tropical reef fish species that will do well in larger aquariums with strong filtration and good water movement. It is very active swimmer that appreciates adequate space in the aquarium in which it swims along with small to moderate amounts of live rock.
