  • Description
  • The Masudas Hogfish is a stunning and very colorful hogfish. Masudas Hogfish have a mostly white body with strong red horizontal stripes that can sometimes have a little hue to them. Masudas Hogfishs also have a small black spot behind their eyes.

    Masudas Hogfish reach a maximum adult size of around 5 inches and need to be kept in tanks that are at least 55 gallons in size. Masudas Hogfish are peaceful fish that should get along with most other fish, coral and inverts in your tank. This makes the Masudas Hogfish a great fish to add to a reef tank. Larger Masudas Hogfish will sometimes bother smaller shrimp in reef thanks though.

    Masudas Hogfish can be kept in small groups in larger tanks, but need to be introduced at the same time to help with aggression issues. Masudas Hogfish will do the best if kept in tanks with lots of live rock for them to pick small inverts off of between feedings and also to hide in if they feel threatened.

    Masudas Hogfish are carnivores and require a diet that is rich in meaty foods like mysis and brine shrimp, high quality meaty frozen foods and small pieces of fresh sea food should keep your Masudas Hogfish healthy and happy.
