Mine seems to have a taste for xenia, despite the abundance of algae in the tank for him to munch on. Anyone else have a foxface go after coral?

ooo ya got me worried now lol
i only have my foxface for a few weeks but he shows no interest in corals (so far)
i just added a tiny xenia today, ill watch to see if he picks at it.
they need to graze pretty much all day tho. i feed mine twice a day flakes and then he gets nori (seaweed) to pick at from a clip.
his belly is always fat, i can see him busting out sometimes lol
hes probably hungry...feed him a little more and always keep a vegi clip for him to graze on and he should stop eating corals

Hmm.... I had a Xenia frag disapear and I assumed it was my narrowlined puffer(who eats aiptasia), but it could have been my Foxface..... He's left all my other corals alone

they tend to be very vegitarian oriented.

G~
Not mine, he eats brine shrimp and the meat off the skewer I use for feeding the puffer....

Geoff, I am one of the rare ones that LIKES my xenia ;) (well, for the time being anyways)

I doubt he will do permanent damage. Im not upset enough to remove him. It is after all a fish tank. well, its argueable, but it is also a reef tank.....
