This fish is both hardy and aggressive, so it is important to provide an aquarium of 30 gallons or more with plenty of hiding places and no other large, aggressive fish. This fish may eat small fish and shrimp, so extra caution should be taken when introducing it to a reef aquarium. However, with the right environment this fish can be a great addition to any reef. Additionally, it is fairly easy to care for and has interesting colorations, making it a great addition to any experienced aquarist’s tank.

The Two Spot Hawkfish is an ideal addition to a reef tank and with the correct diet, it can thrive in captivity. This species should be fed a variety of marine meats, such as mysis shrimp, brine shrimp, chopped clams, and other frozen preparations. Live feeder shrimp can also be offered, but it should not be the main diet staple. With a balanced diet, the Two Spot Hawkfish can live a long and healthy life in an aquarium. Additionally, providing a plentiful source of live rock for grazing can help to supplement its diet. Lastly, regular water changes are important for keeping this species healthy.
