The Sepiacauda Hog is a beautiful fish with an elongated body and red and white horizontal striping, along with a black spot on the peduncle. This fish originates from the Indo-Pacific and is hardy enough for beginner and experienced aquarists. This fish is reef safe but may eat smaller crustaceans as it grows. Do not mix with other small hogs. This fish will appreciate meaty foods and plenty of hiding places.
