Two spot hogfish for sale

Postby Tylfly » Sun Dec 18, 2016 2:08 pm

He seems to be to territorial for my size of tank. Open to offers on him.
Any suggestions on how to catch him with out ripping my display apart?

Still working on catching him. Trying to get him used to feeding around my fish trap still. You are the first to reply so if I can catch him you can have him

Got him used to eating off of the tongs near the mouth of the trap, but he won't go in it. The coral beauty on the other hand seems to love being in the trap and goes in and out all day

Should I be using a bigger bottle than a 591 ml?

Not sure. I personally never had much luck with the bottle traps. I started feeding my fish using a net so they would start coming to it to catch them.

Hey just wondering how you were making out catching the fish? Just curious the size of your tank? He will be going into a 180 gallon so wondering if I might have territorial issues.
