      Scientific Name: Cirrhitops fasciatus
      Common Names: Redbarred Hawkfish, Redbar Hawkfish, Blood Red Hawkfish, Banded Hawkfish
      Max. size: 12.7 cm TL (male/unsexed)
      Environment: reef-associated; non-migratory; marine; depth range - 30 m
      Climate: tropical
      Distribution: Indo-Pacific: Madagascar, RĂ©union, Mauritius, Japan, and Hawaii.
      Biology: Occurs on seaward reefs, in areas of moderate to rich coral growth. Typically at the bases of coral heads on hard bottoms. Feeds about equally on small fishes, shrimps and crabs; to a lesser extent, on sipunculids and zooplankton (larval shrimps, copepods, amphipods and larval gastropods).
      Aquarium Care: Not as available in the hobby as other hawkfish species. The Redbarred Hawkfish is very durable, but is a threat to small fishes and crustaceans. Is best to keep this species in a tank with larger or more aggressive fish (i.e. angelfish, larger pseudochromoids, larger wrasses, puffers, and triggers). Feed a variety of meaty foods, including pigment-enriched foods to help maintain its coloration.
