thats cool thanx i was probly gunna get all the shrimps and crabs and stuff first n e way if n e one has experienced sumthing different let me know i dont wanna get a hawk that wipes out all my crustaceans
I had (still have) a Flame Hawk with two fairly large sized cleaner skunk shrimps. They co-habitated well for about a year. Then one day I could only find one of the two shrimps, a few days later I see the antennae sticking out of the hawks mouth.
The only thing any of my hawkfish have eaten was food I put in the tank, or small shrimp added after the hawk. However, it is a gamble, the information you were given is accurate, but each experience will vary. I've never seen one go after a hermit or a snail, no matter when they were added.
ok cool thanx guys youve been a big help i think i am gunna get one ill just make sure to wait until i think im done putting n e thing in my tank wut size tank do you guys think would be good for it for life
