I purchased the arc eye hawk fish, as he was very attractive. Gorgeous colors, compared to other hawk fish. Brought him home, acclimated him, threw him in and in a matter of about 2 hours destruction! He got in started attacking every fish in the tank, killed 2 cleaner shrimps, and even knocked over some rock with his craziness. By the 6th hour of owning him, it was his time to go. To make this worse, catching this guy was nearly impossible. I had to literally tear down the tank, take out almost every rock, till finally he was in the net. I took it back to the fish store, and told them to take it back. I was so upset, and frustrated at the incident as I didnt even ask for a refund. So lost two cleaner shrimps, all the fish are all chewed up and stressed, teared down a 3 year old established tank and lost $40. This fish is one of my most hated! Don't recommend this fish for anyone, unless hes going in a predator tank. I wish I could review this fish on what he ate and all that , but time with this fish was short. Do not buy this fish!
