Wow, then i must have a nice one, mine doesnt even touch the shrimp, and he pigs out on flakes, doesnt even try to touch the meats. But even though they state that, every fish is different.

But, My second fave was the longnose. They have great personality too !! And they stand out more from other hawks with their "beak" like feature. But they may eat smaller feather dusters, and shrimps as they grow larger. They can attain a length of 5.1 inches.

My flame never ate feather dusters, and my cleaner shrimps never even hid from him.

Flame hawkfish DO eat cleaner shrimp. You might get lucky but in general, you will not.
Warmest regards,
