Lyretail Hogfish are found from the Red Sea to South Africa and east to the Line and Tuamoto islands, north to southern Japan, south to New Caledonia and the Austral Islands.
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 Lyretail Hogfish has a reddish-orange face and white posterior with red highlights. It has a beautiful long tail, hence its name.
A 70 gallon or larger aquarium with hiding places should be provided. It is moderately aggressive and should be housed with other moderately aggressive fish.
The diet varies with maturity. As a juvenile, the Lyretail Hogfish will eat parasites off its tank mates. With maturity, however, it likes meaty foods such as snails, worms, mussels, and small fish. It may even blow water over the sand to uncover food.
