Falco Hawkfish

This very unique looking Hawkfish is white with red-brown spots that run diagonally along the body. They have small tufts of bright yellow on the tips of their dorsal fin ray called cirri. They are also known as the Spotted Hawkfish but should not be mistaken for Cirrhitichthys aprinus.

Requirements
A 30 gallon or larger aquarium with plenty of hiding places is acceptable for this hardy and aggressive fish. It should not be kept with larger more aggressive hawkfish. Although it eats small fish and shrimp, with caution, it can make an excellent reef inhabitant.

Feeding
The Falco Hawkfish diet should include a variety of marine meats, frozen preparations, and live feeder shrimp.

  1. I bought one of these fish one year ago. He does wonderful in my 75 gal. reef tank/w other fish. He is really a sweetheart and minds his own business. I love to see him constantly darting from place to place. A very active, healthy, beautifully colored striking addition to my reef. Thanks again,doc’s

  2. This is a wonderful fish. The most admirable characteristic of my Hawk is that he will swim up to the glass and follow you around the aquarium. He is fast to eat feeder fish and shrimp. This is also the only fish in my tank besides a Zebra Lion that never came down with ich when I had a bad spout of it that wiped out most of my stock
