The Peppermint Hogfish is a brilliant red with white horizontal stripes. Its common name comes from the colouration and elongated body of these fish. The genus Bodianus has recently been revised, and this fish now has a proper species name. With its peaceful temperament, these fish make a great addition to the saltwater fish or reef aquarium. 

A 50-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 Peppermint Hogfish is going to be added to the aquarium, it is very important to do this simultaneously as they will be slightly territorial among themselves. When full grown, mature Peppermint Hogfish may take a liking to smaller ornamental shrimp that are introduced after the hogfish is established in the reef aquarium.

A diet consisting of meaty foods including vitamin enriched brine shrimp or mysid shrimp is preferred, as well as a high quality marine flake food.
