This rabbitfish is more outgoing than its relative the Foxface. A peaceful addition to any community aquarium.This fish can be recognized by the two bars that adorn its body. The first bar extends from the bottom of the mouth to the top of the head and masks the eyes. The second runs from the 4th-5th dorsal spine base to the base of the pectoral fin. The body is also marked with blue spotted eye bands and shoulder bands. Behind and adjacent to the shoulder band you can see a silvery yellow area.This species has stout, venomous spines.The rabbitfish should be fed algaes, natural seaweeds, macroalgaes, dried seaweed and a herbivore prepared diet. Meaty foods such as brine may be offered as a treat, but too much can harm them.
