This pair of longnose hawkfish (Oxycirrhitus typus) rarely separate for any length of time.
I was particularly motivated to write this article after overhearing a local petshop employee telling a potential customer that they were a hardy addition to any reef aquarium.
I think the overall attitude about them would change if people kept them long enough (in a separate tank of course) to get to know them. I will give a brief background on them and describe their husbandry requirements for people who would actually like to keep them around.
