Magnificent Foxface

The Magnificent Foxface, also known as the Magnificent Rabbitfish, Andaman Foxface, or the Red Fin Foxface, is a uniquely colored fish. The face is white with a distinctive black band. The body is half white and half dark brown to black and each fin is fringed with yellow or red. It is a very hardy fish, and is a great addition 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 Magnificent 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 love this fish! When I first opened the package his coloration was quite ugly, and I thought I had gotten the wrong fish, but once in my tank it’s diplay lives up to its name. I never should have hesitated with this fish. It is peaceful. I have a couple tangs that have tried to stab it with their prong by their tale, and at first he ignored it. Now he flares his dorsal fin in their direction and they leave him alone. He is just gorgeous! Truly the prize of my tank. I am glad to read it is hardy. This fish is stunning!
