These hardy, tropical gems are excellent choices for novices, yet so interesting that they remain popular with advanced aquarists as well. Most of the 35+ Hawkfish are brilliantly-colored, and measure 2-4 inches in length. Their time is spent “perched” on a favored high point in the tank, from which they will swoop down upon their prey in a “hawk-like” manner. Hawkfish also have the endearing habit of watching you as you move about the room, and will swim up to examine your hand as you work within the tank – really a near-perfect aquarium inhabitant!
