It is a beneficial fish for cleaning parasites off of its tank mates. The Spanish Hogfish will need to be kept in a 150 gallon or larger fish-only tank, or the reef will become its buffet. It is aggressive towards smaller, docile fish that are easily bullied.

The mature adult Spanish Hogfish will eat snails, worms, mussels, small fish, shrimp, and squid.
