and do you think it would be fit in my tank? with a damsel and a green clown goby? and the size. because some sights say it needs like 55 galons others say 10 and all over so what do you guys think a 14 gallon will be ok?

No I would say it needs at least a 29 gallon tank. 14 might be too small. Sorry.

The hogfish I have seen need much larger tanks.

Looking at some info on hog fish....They seem to range from 8-10" and like room to swim and plenty of rock work. Thay also seem not to be reef safe. So I would also suggest a larger tank
