Bodianus pulchellus and Bodianus rufus, the Cuban and Spanish Hogfishes respectively we’ll mention together. Both are (1)s, good looking and medium aggressive. The Cuban Hogfish is sold for more money for its more brilliant coloring and smaller ultimate size (to 9"). The Spanish Hog gets to about twice that and there are some interesting mιlange-colored individuals of this species to look for. Both these tropical West Atlantic Hogfishes function as cleaners as young and showcase specimens in captivity.

Bodianus pulchellus (Poey 1860), The Spotfin or Cuban Hogfish. Tropical West Atlantic; South Carolina to Venezuela.  To about eleven inches total length. Exemplary aquarium species.
