    My 125G has been up for nearly 4 months, I freaking love it! Everything seems to be going well. Currently I have a foxface, a lawnmower blenny, a little damsel and a 6 line wrasse. I also have a frogspawn and a dicosoma. I was considering getting a pair of clowns and a blue tang but I fear my...

    Hey all, I've had a fox face :fish: for about 3 months. I was planning on getting rid of him after my ich attack to start the empty tank cycle. So far he hasn't eaten my coral. Once I thought he was eating my zoa but found out it was stinging stunner close by. I haven't feed him anything...

    I added a Spotted Foxface on 2-24-17. At first he was very shy and hid in the live rock the first day or so. He camouflaged often and seemed a bit scared, especially if anyone was close to the tank. After a couple of days he got more brave, and after a week he was greeting me for food and out...

    Just earlier I was looking at my tank and I found my Lawnmower Blenny on its side dead. It doesnt look like it was a normal death because its entire underside was swollen. The Foxface that I also have in the same tank seemed really agitated and I've heard that their venom does make things swell...

    I got a one-spot foxface 4 weeks ago, first fish for the 180G tank, he's healthy but surprisingly avoids and doesn't go for nori. I tried once a week after adding him and again last night but he doesn't seem to care for it. There is plenty for him to graze on and the only other fish i have in is...

    Hi all, been a while! My bicolor foxface who has made a miraculous recovery from his previous owner's care has developed these weird pale patches on one side. This is not his camoflage coloring. No clamped fins/cloudy eyes, moving and eating like a pig, but he's still really shy. I'm hoping I...

    NOOOOO!! :( so last night I was adding some new corals, and the foxface wasn't too happy that I was putting my hand in the tank. However, it then didn't care swimming all over, and I was scared of touching it. Anyways, once I was done, it hid between two tight rocks behind the coral. I thought...

He was with a Yellow Tang and i took them home. There he is swimming for the first time in a straight line speeding up and enjoying a good...

    Ok so I set up a 65g last spring, cycled for a month or so and went out looking for fish. Did some research and read "Green Chromis, great for noobs" "green chromis really hardy" and the such. 7 months later after one restocking I'm back down to 2 Chromis. Started with 5 lost 3, put in 3 more...

    I have a foxface who had been eating fine for several months. He started to eat less and he looks really bad now. I'm noticing that he's got something stuck in his mouth, it looks like a piece of brine stuck in his teeth or something. Any ideas on how I can get him eating again? He's really not...

    Heya, So my reef tank has been set up and running for about 6 months now and I am just now getting a couple algae blooms( red and green) and my hermit crabs are not really doing the job. Would a blenny or a foxface help me out? Or would something else help better? Right now there...

    Very strange but my perfectly healthy and eating saddleback died yesterday. No warning signs until I see him flopping at the bottom. Freaked out and checked my levels. Ph 8.2 ammonianitrate and nitrite at 0. I have no clue what happened unless the foxface stuck him. The fox was just introduced...

    Hey all... (OK, posting this in the right place now). My foxface was eating like a hog yesterday and swimming around. Today he's laying on the bottom of the tank behind anything he can find to keep from blowing in the current. He's got his spines out constantly and he looks like he is...
