Flame Hawkfish



Flame Hawkfish

The Flame Hawkfish (Neocirrhites armatus) is a visually stunning marine species native to Indo-Pacific coral reefs. With vibrant red-orange hues and a unique perching behavior, this small fish, reaching up to 4 inches, is often found among coral branches. Solitary and territorial, it employs its perching strategy to ambush small crustaceans. Ongoing research on its ecological role and distinctive traits contributes to our understanding of marine biodiversity and aids conservation efforts.
