my foxface tang is being a lil ******* eating my corals what would make them get aggressive and what can I do to tame his lil butt down he is way to quick to catch and got way too much stuff to rip apart to get him
I have had him a month I switched up the tanks live rock to confuse him on where everything is but he is still nipping the funny thing is that the guy I bought all the fish and everything from had him for years and never had an issue he said its new to him very weird behavior I guess. if they are not tangs then what are they? same fish same coral same everything he had before nothing new...
I would say to feed him more. I havent had mine that long, but I almost always have a piece of seaweed "rubber-banded" to a small piece of rock and that way he can munch on that when he wants. He's never bothered my corals...yet. They are rabbitfish like lilad said, but Im pretty sure they are a relative of tangs.
I tried feeding him more and unfortunate for him he had to go but I did not want to pull my tank apart to do that so I was instructed by the previous owner around feeding time to take a 2 liter cut it in 2/3 and get the nipple part cut it just enough for the fish to get in it then flip it inside the 2 litter and put food in it then stick it in the tank so it is in the tank but enough air to keep it afloat so it didn't sink and I caught him in less then 2 hours he was the first to sniff it out and in it then I snagged him out and put him in the 25 gal over flow tank, he is peeved right now lol but the coral can breath as they are safe again and I am happy!!!!
