Diana's Hogfish, also known as Diana Hogfish, Red Diana Hogfish, or the Spotted Hogfish, is a reddish-orange color with white spots on the back along the dorsal fin.

A 550 gallon or larger aquarium with plenty of hiding places provides a good environment. It is very aggressive and should not be housed with smaller, docile fish that are easily bullied.

Diana's Hogfish diet consists of meaty foods such as snails, worms, mussels, and small fish.

Like other hogfish, they are generally compatible with: Dwarf Angelfish, Large Angelfish, Anglers & Frogfish, Anthias, Boxfish, Butterflyfish, Clownfish, Damselfish, Filefish, Goatfish, Hawkfish, Parrotfish, Puffers, Squirrelfish and Tangs & Surgeons.
