The Peppermint Hogfish is a brilliant red with white horizontal stripes. Its common name comes from the coloration and elongated body of these fish. With its peaceful temperament, these fish make a great addition to the saltwater fish or reef aquarium.

An aquarium with hiding places should be provided. It is a very peaceful fish that adjusts quickly to most aquariums. If more than one Pacific Redstripe Hogfish is going to be added to the aquarium, it is very important to do this simultaneously as they will be slightly territorial among themselves. When full grown, mature Pacific Redstripe Hogfish may take a liking to smaller ornamental shrimp that are introduced after the hogfish is established in the reef aquarium.
