    This Wrasse can reach a very large size of up to 24 inches. It is a predatory fish, so caution should be used not to mix smaller fish with it.
    It is found in many places on the reef, shallow and deeper waters.

    Diet:

    The Hog Wrasse is Carnivorous and does have teeth. It feeds on Invertebrates like urchins, crabs, shrimp, other mollusks/crustaceans, and sometimes other smaller fishes. It is not a hard fish to get to eat and adjust to tank life. It will eat just about any type of tank fed foods you give it. Since in nature its natural diet consists of Inverts and Crustaceans, feed it the same type of diet.

    Yep! It's a Hawaiian Saddleback Hogfish and from what I hear they do get quite large. She is a beauty and eats like a hog!

    Nice fish! Any chance for a FTS?
    SG = 1.024-6; Alkalinity 8.3-9.3 dKH; Calcium 420; Magnesium 1300; Temp = 76 to 80; pH = 7.9-8.3. Alkalinity and calcium are dependent on Mg.
