    Picked up a new Twinspot Hogfish last night, it's still a bit shy, but it's looking like it'll be a really cool reef fish. Stays small with great colors. Anyone else have one? What do you guys think about them? They max out at 3-4"

    I love the coloring, but they can be jumpers. The last one that I had was a really nasty bully, on par with a six line. He killed a bluespot jawfish and then proceeded to commit suicide a month later. I still haven't forgiven him.

    Maybe that's why he killed himself. :D

    I think you're right. In addition to being nasty bullies, I believe twinspot hogs have been known to suffer from depression and guilt. :p

    :) woe.. hope this guy isnt a menace. So far he's just hidding, seems pretty passive. I read online they were peaceful reef fish, but guess I shouldnt believe everything I read :) Well hes in the tank so far so good.
