The Anthoides Hogfish has a red-orange face and a white body with a red pattern and elongated caudal fin. This Hog is one of the less aggressive Hogfish and should be kept in a larger fish only tank with plenty of room to swim and hiding places. As a juvenile this fish acts as a cleaner, eating parasites off of larger fish; however, this behavior disappears as they reach maturity. The Anthoides Hog will appreciate a variety of meaty frozen foods and should be housed with other semi-aggressive fish.
