Notes: Porkfish are a peaceful fish that make a wonderful addition to a peaceful saltwater fish only aquarium. A 180 gallon or larger aquarium with abundant open space to swim is required. Several Porkfish, in a school, would be suitable if there is enough room in the aquarium. In the wild these fish prefer to hover around reefs and prefers a cave or ledge for refuge. These fish have been known to occasionally pick parasites from the bodies of tank mates. Do not house Porkfish with aggressive species, and adults should be the first to be introduced into a community tank. They are not a good candidate for a reef aquarium, as they will readily consume any crabs, snails, shrimp and starfish.
