Flame Hawk.



Select Variant
This Flame Hawkfish, also known as the Brilliant Hawkfish, is characterized by bright red bodies and black-colored lines on its dorsal fin and in the eye region. They are extremely friendly fish and are perfect for aquariums with reefs, if they don't have tiny shrimp in the tank. It is necessary to be in possession of 30 gallons or bigger tank that has plenty of live rock to create structures as well as to conceal. They are usually peaceful fish that spends most of their time sitting or playing within the branches of live corals. Be careful when adding them in an aquarium that has tiny saltwater fish like gobies, which live in the bottom, and Blennies. They're bottom dwellers and like to "hang out" on perches on rocks to wait for food to enter the aquarium. Your Flame Hawkfish diet should include diverse fresh and frozen seafood and frozen meats, and live feeder shrimp. Approximate Size Small: 3/4" to 1-1/2"; Medium: 1-1/2" to 2-1/2"; Large: 2-1/2" to 3-1/2"

Helpful Questions From Clients
Frequently Asked Questions
Is hiring a professional necessary to set up a saltwater aquarium?

As a general rule, a larger custom aquarium might require installation by a professional. However, a kit from our online fish store is relatively affordable and beginner friendly. That means you should have no problem setting it up yourself.

Which saltwater aquarium fish should you choose when starting out?

Consider a yellow tang fish. This popular saltwater aquarium fish does a great job of coexisting with other types of fish you’ll find in our online fish store.

How does a saltwater aquarium differ from a freshwater one?

Saltwater aquariums require a bit more maintenance and monitoring than freshwater tanks. Different fish require different levels of salinity, pH tolerances, and temperature requirements. They also require specialized pumps, filters, and other equipment that can handle salt. We can guide you through everything you need to know to set up a healthy, thriving reef tank.

Do fish in a saltwater aquarium swim in a school?

That depends on the species. However, if it’s a fish that swims in a school in the wild, they’ll do the same in an aquarium. Some fish that swim in schools include the green and blue chromis, cardinalfish, and dartfish, for example. When ordering from an online fish store, make sure you do your research on how specific fish species behave to ensure they’ll school (or at least coexist) with your current fish.

Is the effort required to maintain a saltwater aquarium worth it?

Yes! Many aquarists dream of owning thriving saltwater aquariums. You have a tiny piece of the ocean in your home, featuring magical and exotic fish that can only survive in saltwater.
