Hello all. I am looking for help with the pygmy hawkfish. I've tried on a couple of occasions to add this fish to my DT. I've had 1 DOA, 1 die after 4 weeks in QT, & 1 make it through QT to the DT only to be never seen again. Not sure if he is still in there, but I sort of doubt it. Should I just give up? Is this just a difficult species to keep? Thanks

Not difficult but it is shy. If you have quick eaters or larger active fish it may have trouble acclimating. I have kept them successfully with fish like cardinals, gobies, and blennies.
