Does anyone have experience with having a Yellow Candy Hogfish in a FOWLR? I have a 75g with about 75lbs of rock. Plenty of hiding spaces. I have 3 Green Chromis and an Eibli Angel so far. Plan to add a White Tail Tang, Foxface and maybe a Heniochis.

I have never paid much attention to hog fish, but my LFS has one of these (about 1.5 inches) for $25. Almost did an impulse buy, but decided to defer to the crowd here before making a mistake purchasing a fish I knew nothing about.

I plan to upgrade to a much larger FOWLR tank next year and convert the 75 into a reef. Figure he will be closer to 4" by then and would probably keep him in the reef.

Any feedback is appreciated!

Yeah, I read that (and other sites) on my phone while I was at the LFS. I was hoping to hear from someone that has had one in a FOWLR. The web pics don't do the coloring justice. This guy was almost a neon yellow.
