Foxface

The Foxface, also known as the Foxface Rabbitfish, has a very unique body color. It has a mottled yellow-brown body with a dark chest. The face is very light in color and speckled on the lower half. They are a very hardy fish, and are great additions to the newly-established tank.

Requirements
It may reside in a 125 gallon or larger aquarium. It is a very peaceful species except when housed with other rabbitfish. The Magnificent Foxface may be housed with more aggressive fish. Its predators will tend to leave it alone because of its venomous dorsal spines.

Suggestions
Rabbitfish are generally reef-safe if they are well fed. If not, they may nip at or consume some species of LPS and soft coral polyps.

Feeding
The Foxface diet consists of a variety of fresh vegetables and undesirable species of algae. It does nip and possibly eat some soft and hard coral polyps.

  1. I really like the Foxface because in my tank it is a very friendly fish. It has gotten along with all of the different species of fish that I have owned so far. Also, I am fascinated by its ability to change into what I call its “pajamas” at night or when the tank is dark. I would definitely recommend this species of fish for any amateur or professional aquarist.
