The Yellow hawkfish lives in the reef-associated, marine environment.

This golden yellow Hawkfish reaches a length of 5 inches and makes a nice addition to a fish-only tank. Hawkfish lack the swim bladder of most fish and spend time perching on rockwork. They naturally eat shrimp, crabs, and very small fish, but are otherwise reef safe. More
