I have noticed a lot of people asking about the Foxface so I figures it would be a good fish to start with.
common name- Foxface
sub species- Siganus vulpinus=foxface
Siganus uspi, Lo uspi=fiji foxface AKA Black Foxface, Bicolor Foxface
Siganus Doliatus =Scribbled Rabbitfish
Siganus gutattus=Orange Spot Rabbitfish
Siganus magnifica=Magnificent Foxface,Metllic Foxface
Siganus Corallinus= Golden Rabbitfish
The Fox-face is a member of the Spinefeet and Rabbitfish family (Siganidae), which are similar in shape to the surgeon fishes (Acanthuridae), but lack the scalpels The nose is long, with the mouth extended, this is how the fish gets its name Foxface The body is oval and laterally compressed
The one thing all the subspecies have in common is that they are venomous and if the person or animal is allergic then it can cause Death by way of shock. Please be careful when working in the tank and feeding with this fish in the tank.
Diet= omnivore, Provide the Fish with a variety of herbivore foods including flakes, frozen and dried algae sheets. They will also graze on some algae in the tank including short hair algae, caulerpa, byropsism valonia, and ref turf algae.They will also eat krill, squid,clam and mussel, and raw shrimp.
Reef safe= They are considered reef safe but with caution they can pick on LPS coral as well as soft corals
Water conditions=72-78F sg 1.020-1.025 pH 8.1-8.4
Social habit= They pretty peaceful towards other tank mates and When young the rabbitfish will school as they mature they will become territorial and will fight others of the same species. Its best to only keep one in a tank.
Hardiness=These fish are hardy but as with any fish you need to understand what the fish requires to live.
How to tell if your foxface is upset or about to attack=
When a foxface gets upset it point its dorsal fin toward the person or fish that is provoking Before an attack.
They do not mind bright lights or sand in the tank.
habitat= This fish needs room to swim along with places to hide in the rocks. They do not mind bright lights and sandy substrates.
when the fish is first introduced it can be nervous and take a long time to adapt especially if there is a lot of foot traffic in the area of the tank.
I do not own this fish so anyone with personal experience and pictures Please add what you have to say.
