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 Red Stripe Hogfish are a slender hogfish species with broad longitudinal bands of red, yellow and white.
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 Red Stripe 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 Red Stripe 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.
