One Spot Foxface

 
One spot foxface, a peaceful fish, is reef-safe if kept well-fed on its herbivore diet. Although somewhat shy, it often hangs out with another peaceful tank fish like a sailfin tang. The result is movement and beauty in your display tank.

Absolutely LOVE this fish

Comments This fish is so easy to take care of. Not a picky eater, LOVES red seaweed. Our foxface is probably one of the most gentle fish we've owned. The one we have is approx 7" or so, and fun fun fun to watch. He swims around out in the open most of the time, will come to the corner of the tank with his yellow tang buddy (the two are almost inseperable), and let you know it's supper time. When we first got it though, it was VERY highly stressed, went brown and hid in the rocks, we were pretty worried about it, but after a few days he started to come around and make himself at home. We have a 300 gallon and this fish can BOOGIE when he wants to!


Liked about it Extremely easy going, easy to care for, very individual personality, beautiful colors.


Didn't like I really can't think of anything not to like about this fish!

Peaceful Reef tank Fish

Comments The Fox Face is a peaceful rabbitfish from the Coral Sea. I bought this fish for its vibrant colors and unique face. They're beautiful, hardy, and friendly. But they are quite the little babies. When threatened, they will raise their spines in defense and will turn all black for camouflage. They mostly just run away and hide. They do have venomous spine so do use caution around them. It's like a bee sting but to some it could be serious. They graze all day and help keep algae under control.Really nice companion for a Tang. Since they eat the same foods and will eventually become buddies. The foxface is more of a follower than a leader. So you'll never really have to worry about terriotorial issues. They will pick at a variety of food, and should be supplemented with vegetable flakes or seaweed.


Liked about it Its very bright colors and its funny shaped face. Ferocious algea eating fish. Tears up the algae. 15 years ago I bought my first one for algae control. Does the trick quickly. Very social following everyone around always out in the open. They also like to go to the surface to grab some air from time to time. Mine seems to know when bed time is coming (lights out). He will go to his spot and throw the camouflage on preparing for bed. Cool how he seems to know its coming. Will always have one of these guys.


Didn't like Nothing really to dislike about the foxface. Great addition to any aquarium. I guess I wish they had a little more personality.

Very beautiful and active!!

Comments We bought the One Spot Foxface for his color, to add some brightness to our tank. He quickly became one of our favorite fish! He is a very easy to keep fish and is very hearty. We have upgraded our tank 3 times and he has survived all the moves. He has never been aggressive towards any other tank mate. Him and our tang have become friends and can be seen together all the time. He is a good eater and eats anything offered! We feed frozen, pellets, and occasionally add sheet algae. He has also been known to try and take the anemone's shrimp (without success of course!).


Liked about it We love this guys color, especially when he camouflages at night. It looks like he is playing hide and seek because he never sleeps in the same spot! We really like how social he is; unless he is startled by something, he is always out to be seen. He will eat right out of your hand and come to you at the side of the tank. The best part is how hearty he has been. We will be really sad if we ever lose this fish!


Didn't like The only complaint we have about the fish is how much he poops! Since he is such an active eater and will devour a sheet of algae like it is his last meal, we were always seeing poop everywhere! That was a quick fix with some more cleaning crew, especially a sand sifting star and some crabs!

Very Funny Fish

Comments I bought this fish instead of the Hawaiian tang for its colors. It has the vibrant yellow, but also a vibrant black and white. Mine adapted fairly well and is very active now. When you first get these guys part of their defense is to lose their color and play dead or be very still. Mine did this for the first week when anyone would go to the tank to look at him or whenever the lights were off. Since then he swims around all day and very rarely hides and loses color anymore. Even when i clean my tank he just scampers away from my arm or equipment, but still keeps his color and hangs in the front of the display. I have enjoyed this fish very much and would recommend him to anyone who was thinking of getting one.


Liked about it Colors, Face, Temperament


Didn't like nothing

The beautiful one spot foxface

Comments The one spot foxface (Siganus unimaculatus) is an peaceful herbivore with lots of personality and lovely markings. It will hide in favorite caves when startled but spends much of the day exploring the entire tank usually in the company of another species companion (i.e. sailfin tang). The foxface's coloration is eye-catching and also varies to a camouflage mottling when hiding among rocks. It needs herbivore food for grazing to ensure its reef safeness; a hungry foxface could nip at coral. Although the foxface has venomous spines, they are easy to avoid. The foxface's shy nature makes it hide away from human hands reaching into the tank to clean.


Liked about it The one spot foxface is a beautiful yellow fish with striking black and white markings. Its personality is engaging and it swim around the entire tank. It grows to about 7" and compliments other larger display fish very well.


Didn't like If touched, the venomous spines would sting. If hungry, the foxface could damage coral. If alone without another companion fish, the foxface might spend more time in hiding and be less attractive and visible. Honestly I don't have anything I don't like about the foxface because each of these drawbacks are easily solved.
