The Snooty Wrasse is a smaller hogfish that grows to about 3 or 4 inches and usually aren’t that aggressive. Like the other hogfish, they will eat small invertebrates, so if you place them into a reef tank you need to take that into consideration. Does well in FO or FOWLR tanks and can be kept with small and peaceful fish.
