A 150-gallon or larger aquarium with plenty of hiding places is recommended for housing aggressive fish species. This is because such an environment provides enough space for them to move around, and for the aggression to be diffused. To ensure the fish’s well-being, it is important to not house this species with smaller, docile fish that are likely to be easily bullied. It is best to keep aggressive species with other aggressive species in order to avoid any harm to other fish. Additionally, providing plenty of hiding spots can help reduce the stress levels of the fish, improving their overall health and comfort.

The Red Diana Hogfish has an omnivorous diet, consisting of both meaty foods such as snails, worms, mussels, and small fish, as well as vegetation. This combination of foods helps the fish stay healthy and strong. Additionally, providing a variety of food is necessary to ensure the long-term health of the fish. Furthermore, the food should be of high quality and free of any contaminants. Feeding the Red Diana Hogfish a balanced diet is essential for its growth and survival.
