Cuban Hogfish actually have three different color patterns over their lifetime. Juveniles are yellow, intermediates will morph into the adult pattern, but be darker, and adults will turn a beautiful red color. Cuban Hogs (sometimes also called Spotfin Hogs) do not get nearly as large as their cousins, the Spanish Hogfish, topping out at 8". They are also collected from much deeper water (around 100 feet). They aren't a "rare" fish per se, but rarely are they found at safe depths to dive, as well as survive the decompression process. Therefore we don't collect them, we import them when available, which is extremely rare. Like juvenile angelfish, juvenile hogfish act as cleaners.
