Giant hogfish

The Giant hogfish lives in the reef-associated, marine, depth range 25 - 65 m environment.

People have lists, well, the giant hogfish is on my list. I kind of like getting snapper who hang out on the bottom next to coral, too. They are challenging and very smart. They keep their eye on you, so when you get near, they run away. More
