Coral Hogfish also known as the Splitlevel Hogfish, Eclipse Hogfish or Mesothorax Hogfish are found from Japan and Sydney, Australia, New Caledonia and Fiji and along the western coast of Malaysia and Indonesia, Nicobars and the Andaman Sea.
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 Coral Hogfish juveniles are burgundy with yellow spots and as they develop into adults they loose the spots and have a burgundy face with rosy-yellow posterior, separated by a black stripe.
It is a beneficial fish for cleaning parasites off of its tank mates. The Coral Hogfish needs to be kept in a 70 gallon or larger fish-only tank, or the reef will become its buffet. It is aggressive towards smaller, docile fish that are easily bullied.
The mature adult Coral Hogfish will eat snails, worms, mussels, small fish, shrimp, and squid.
