Falco Hawkfish

I picked up this cool Falco hawkfish today, to round out the 30g reef stocking (again!). The wrasse and pygmy angel were very interested in the newcomer but he ignored them and immediately started poking around the tank investigating everything. Seems like a really neat fish so I hope he settles in well. You gotta love the little fuzzies on the tips of the dorsal fin!

Cool fish. It's dorsal fin is so odd-looking.

absolutely beautiful. I thought about a hawkfish, but i think my reef would be too small for such an agressive fish, plus i have inverts...

He does seem to like some space. Falcos aren't as agressive as some of the other hawkfishes. He was in a tank with cleaner shrimp and hermits at the LFS, and so far has ignored my shrimp, snails and crabs. Hopefully it stays that way!

Very nice pick up. I'm considering one of those for my 45. So colorful and awesome!

Great pics too!
