Description

The Foxface Rabbitfish is a bright yellow medium-sized fish. The head and front portion of its body is striped black-brown and white. They retain this bright coloring throughout the day, and during the night or when stressed, like many other fishes, they have the ability to change into a mottled dark brown color. This is most likely used as a camouflage against predators, and upon waking, their bright colors almost immediately return. They have a long snout-like mouth that is used for feeding on algae and other vegetation, with the snout being particularly handy for reaching into crevices.

 

Food

The foxface rabbitfish is an omnivore that eats more vegetable matter than meet. You should provide a constant supply of algae, sushi nori and you can also provide blanched spinach or lettuce leaves. Additionally, foods such as brine-shrimp, plankton, clams, mussels, and squid should be offered.

 

Breeding

This is an egg laying species. Foxface Rabbitfishes form pairs when they are about 10 cm.The pairs are believed to last until a partner dies.

 

Compatible with

Rabbitfish in general can be kept with all other species of fish. They should not be housed with groupers, sharks or rays and can be a problem if housed with triggerfish, trumpetfish and certain wrasses – check with your local supplier for specific species.

 

Note

Peaceful but should be housed individually when older as it will fight with other related species. Will flair dorsal and anal fins when spooked.
