Candy Hogfish also known as the Yellow Candy Hogfish, Twospot Hogfish, Yellow Hogfish or Twospot Slender Hogfish are found from Madagascar to New Caledonia, Japan to New Zealand.
Livestock arrives in and out of stock very regularly, depending upon availability of the item from the source. The more rare and expensive items are often difficult to hold in stock, and can take time to source, so we generally require a deposit to locate and purchase the extremely rare items
The Candy Hogfish is a bright yellow in colour with faint red horizontal stripes along with a black spot behind the eye and close to the tail.
A 30 gallon or larger aquarium with hiding places should be provided. It is a very peaceful fish that adjusts quickly to most aquariums. If more than one Candy Hogfish is going to be added to the tank, it is very important to do this simultaneously as they will be slightly territorial among themselves. When full grown, mature the Candy Hogfish may take a liking to smaller ornamental shrimp that are introduced after the hogfish is established in the reef aquarium.
The diet consisting of meaty foods including vitamin enriched brine shrimp or mysis shrimp is preferred, as well as a high quality marine flake food.
