Common Name Red Diana Hogfish, Spotted Hog
Family Labridae
Latin Name Bodianus Diana

The Coral Hogfish, also known as Eclipse Hogfish or Mesothorax Hogfish, has a burgundy face with a rosy-yellow posterior, separated by a black stripe.

It is a beneficial fish for a 150 litre or larger reef tank as a youth, cleaning parasites off of its tank mates. With maturity, however, it will need to be in a 350 litre or larger fish-only tank, or the reef will become its buffet. It is aggressive towards smaller, docile fish that are easily bullied.

The mature adult Coral Hogfish will eat snails, worms, mussels, small fish, shrimp, and squid.
