    Just wonder what you guys all think. I recently lost a one spotted foxface that i loved dearly (dang carpet anemone). I am trying to replace Foxy (which can never truly be replaced) but i would like to get a fish from the rabbitfish family. Right now i am between these 3. -Decorated Foxface...

    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...

I know that they both are great algea eaters and i was wondering if i could keep either one of them in my tank until i upgrade to a 125 gallon (which...

    I have a bi-color foxface and a friend just gave me two scribble's. He was telling that they each go to the surface and blow bubbles. I was thrilled because the bi-color also does that. He goes to the surface sucks air in his mouth and blows bubbles out his gills. I have not seen the scribbles...
