I just bought a hawkfish and he's doing great with all my other fish. I haven't seen any aggressive behavior from him or my other fish. I think it all depends on the fish, some are naturally killers while others are calm and cool.

Ellen, I disagree. I have had my hawkfish for over a year and a half with a clownfish and a lawnmower blenny, and the 3 of them could not be happier! He is very content with other fish! You could not keep a tank full of hawkfish, because unless they are in a mated pair or harem, they will attack each other.

My falcos was mean only to new arrivals and was mean to all shrimp before he figured out they could clean him off and served a purpose to him other than lunch.

I was going to get one tomorrow....NOT now. Ii've got a Bi-Color angel, a Scopas tang, a powder Blue tang, 3 Firefish, a Percula, a Purple& yellow Dottieback, a banded Coral shrimp, 5 or 10 little bitty Hermit crabs, and a handful of Turbo snails, all in a 135. Thanks everybody, It would be really crappy if that fish upset my happy tank.

I have been thinking about getting one of these for a while now. I thought they are very pretty and cute and fun looking fish to have...until i read all the comments on this site. Thanks to all who commented for helping me stay away from a apparently very disastrous decision!

I started my aquarium with a hawkfish and 2 barrier reef chromis. 2 weeks later I have no chromis but the hawkfish seems fine having the whole tank to him self, like 200 litres. Hawkfish are great and have a big personality but they just arent community fish and unless you want to waste money on replacing fish all the time and cringing when you find another dead one, I'd take the hawkfish back to the shop... OR have a tank full of hawkfish!

I have had my falco hawkfish for about 10 months. Pretty cool if its the last fish that you add to your tank... EVER! It does not like new fish added to the tank, or really new crabs either. Oh, and they are pretty tough to catch too. They seem much more aggresive than most web sites make you aware of.

YUP MINES A KILLER! Just pulled the whole tank apart to get him out! It's a shame because I really liked the little fella, had lots of personality!

Ahhhh ... I beg to differ ... my daughter started her very first salt aquarium ever three yrs ago, with a clown fish and a red flame hawk. They are the happiest funniest fish I have ever seen. She must just have a knack for it, seeing how I have been no help since I know nothing at all about fish. I would recommend this fish to anyone that is responsible with the tank.
