Swallowtail Hawkfish also known as the Lyretail Hawkfish, Soaring Hawkfish or Red Hawkfish are found from East Africa south to the southeast coast of South Africa and east to Tonga, north to southern Japan, south to New Caledonia, southeastern Australia and northern 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 Swallowtail Hawkfish has a mottled orange to red body. Its lyre-shaped tail sets it apart from most of the other hawkfish in appearance.
It may be grouped with other Swallowtail Hawkfish if all are introduced to the aquarium at the same time and if there is adequate room available. Although it eats small fish and shrimp, it can make an excellent reef inhabitant under the right conditions. It uses anemones and large-polyped corals for protection.
The Swallowtail Hawkfish diet should include a variety of marine meats, frozen preparations, and live feeder shrimp.
