The Foxface, also known as the Foxface Rabbitfish or the Common Foxface, is a popular marine fish species known for its unique appearance and peaceful temperament. They are native to the Indo-Pacific region and can be found in a variety of coral reefs.
Foxfaces have a distinct appearance with their bright yellow to orange body and black mask around their eyes. They also have venomous spines on their dorsal, anal, and pelvic fins, which they use as a defense mechanism. These spines can cause painful stings, so caution should be taken when handling them.
They are relatively large fish, with a maximum size of up to 10 inches, and require a minimum tank size of 75 gallons. They are herbivores and require a varied diet of seaweed, algae, and vegetable matter. It's important to provide them with plenty of live rock and hiding places to help them feel secure.
Foxfaces are generally peaceful and can be kept with other peaceful fish species. However, caution should be taken when keeping them with other rabbitfish species, as they may become aggressive towards one another.
Overall, Foxfaces are a beautiful and interesting addition to a marine aquarium. Their unique appearance and peaceful nature make them a popular choice for many aquarists.
