I have a JBJ 45 and am considering adding a bonded pair I found for sale to my tank. I was wondering if anyone could give insight. Are they likely to be more aggressive than one? Do they flirt? I currently have two clowns, a Benghaii cardinal, and a captive bred dragonet. These would complete my fish additions - would I be likely to have aggression issues with a pair instead of one?

I recently acquired my second hawk fish, the two bonded almost instantly. It’s been a few weeks and I love the way they interact with each other.

I had a pair of long nose hawkfish for about 7 years they were both about two inches long when I got them, they were always together in my 168 gallon tank, one got very big 6 inches, while the other only got about 4 inches. The big one got a pronounced hump head like a male salmon cool fish so sad they don’t live that long. The little female died first just stopped eating, followed by the big male about six months later.
