Description
Longnose Hawkfish are considered the most suited for the reef environment. Like other Hawkfish it will eat small ornamental shrimp (Sexy, Cleaner, Peppermint and other shrimp) and may also attack small fish with long, skinny bodies as well. Even though it has a small looking mouth, it can open it quite wide. Can be kept in pairs providing that a male/female pair are introduced simultaneously. Longnose Hawkfish are frequently harassed by other members of the hawkfish family as they are non-aggressive.
Diet
Hawkfish prefer meaty foods that include fish and crustacean flesh, frozen mysis shrimp and other frozen commercial preparations. Hawkfish may eventually accept flake or pellet with time.
