The Pixy Hawkfish, also known as the Coral Hawkfish, is sometimes referred to as the Spotted Hawkfish, but it should not be confused with Cirrhitichthys aprinus, also called the Spotted Hawkfish. The Pixy Hawkfish has a whitish-blue body with large red spots.

A 100 Litre or larger aquarium is acceptable for this hardy and aggressive fish. It will harass small, peaceful fish and most any other fish that is introduced to the aquarium after it has become established. Its tank mates should be larger than itself and at least semi-aggressive. It will eat small fish and crustaceans.

The Pixy Hawkfish diet should include a variety of marine meats, frozen preparations, and live feeder shrimp.
