This Two Spot Hawkfish is cream in color, with streaks of rusty blotches that cover all of the body. Two black spots are visible that are located in the area of the gill plates, and one towards its tail, which gives the name to the fish. Its eyes sport bright red hue that makes it mysterious.

A 30 gallon or larger tank with lots of hiding spots is sufficient for this robust as well as aggressive species. It is not recommended to keep it together with larger hawkfish that are more aggressive. While it is a scavenger for small shrimp and fish, however, with care it could be excellent reef fish.

The diet of the Two Spot Hawkfish should consist of a variety of seafood meats, frozen products as well as live feeder shrimp.

Two Spot Hawkfish Info

The Twospot Hawkfish (Amblycirrhitus bimacula) is sometimes referred to by the name of Twinspot Hawkfish . They are extremely shy in comparison to other Hawkfish. They are generally obscured and it’s not often that you see them and it can be difficult to know how widespread they are. However, judging from the number of sightings at night.

The Twospot Hawkfish is white, with brown or orange-brown dots that run down the body. There is a black spot that is located on the opercule right behind the eye , as well as another spot at the back of the dorsal fin’s base. Cirri-like tufts can be found at the very top of every dorsal vertebrae.

The pectoral fins are massive and do not have scales. They can reach 8.5 centimeters, and are often seen in the sea. The eyes of these fish are bulbous, giving them a large field of view and an orange ring surrounding them. The mouth is tapered , and in proportion is rather small.

Two Spot Hawkfish Diet

It is a predatory carnivore, as the name suggests and its primary diet is composed of crustaceans and small fish. They are predators of ambush and with no swimming bladders they are able to swiftly dart upwards and downwards, hence their name of Hawkfish.
