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. - It may reside in a 70 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. Rabbitfish are generally reef-safe if they are well fed. If not, it is possible for them to nip at and consume some species of LPS and soft corals. - - 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.

Shy for a while

Comments The Foxface has been a great addition! Took a couple of weeks for him to settle in. He hid and kept his color change for a while. (overnight shipping). Feed him formula 2 in a hang on the wall mesh to pick at during the day because he was enjoying my polyps to much. Co-habitats well w flame angel, bl damsels, percs & mandarin in a 75 gal tank. He was so shy in the beginning, after he dared to venture if he saw the inkling of a human he hid immediately.


Liked about it Eats hair algae, peaceful, and demonstrates personality by color changing.


Didn't like Nipping at the polyps even though he has a jungle of hair algae. Although the polyps were close to his cave and that was something he could nip and hide. Now more social, comes to the spongey algae foods more now.

While large, generally a great addition to a reef tank

Comments Foxface are often very docile fish (especially for their size), and are highly recommended for their algae eating ability. For tanks over about 75 gallons, these are great additions. They can get a bit large, so make certain there is space for them before adding.


Liked about it Nice colors, good personality, great algae eaters. The magnificent is really striking in coloration. They're known for helping in nuisance algae control. I've had a similar fish (the foxface lo) in one of my systems for well over 4 years and he's been an excellent citizen.


Didn't like A bit large, can be aggressive eaters (especially if you have skittish fish). They've also got poisonous spines at the front of their dorsal fin, so make certain you never try to grasp the fish bare-handed.

Thoughts On Magnificent FoxFace

Comments Great addition to any reef that can handle this beautiful Foxface. The Magnificent Foxface is a easy fish to take care of. They except mysis shrimp, Formula II pellets, and Chaeto(Chaetomorpha). Their main source of diet is vegetable matter.


Liked about it This fish will eat hair algae. These fish have the repetition of eating corals. I have only seen mine pick at Xenia, but never biting of any polyps. To keep my fox face feed I keep a acrylic fish assimilator in the tank with holes drilled in it filled with Chaeto(Chaetomorpha).


Didn't like No complaints!
