Malawi Hawk

Postby Patcher1 » Wed Jan 01, 2020 4:58 pm

I have a 90 gallon 4 ft tank with a mixture of 12 haps and peacocks. I would like to add a Malawi hawk maybe in the next 6 months. Would the Hawk work in a 4ft tank? I have good filtration.

This is an 11" inch fish...you want a tank that is at least 6 feet long.

I don't even like an 8" fish in a 48" tank.

Thank you for your input. Yeah maybe if I upgrade my tank in a few years.

For sure a minimum of 6 foot tank for long term keeping. They grow relatively quick as well. Fairly active for a big fish.
