The Cuban Hogfish Also known as the Spotfin Hogfish has a pinkish-orange body and head. The caudal area of the body and tail are lighter sometimes approaching yellow. The intensity and position of the colors may vary greatly.

The Cuban Hogfish requires space to swim in, which is why tanks of at least one hundred and fifty-five gallons are required to keep an adult. It is a great fish for novices with tanks that are large. It is gentle and generally safe with all species of fish and invertebrates. It is not a problem with crustaceans, however. Tankmates should be more than Wrasse. Although it is not a risk for smaller fish, the fish could be a bit intimidating during feeding time.

A mature Cuban Hogfish can eat snails, worms and mussels, small fish shrimp, and squid.
