Overview

The graceful One Spot Foxface features a distinct "eyespot" on its body. Also called the Blotched Foxface, the One Spot Foxface is extremely similar in appearance to the Foxface Lo, except for the aforementioned spot. Natural variation of this dark spot can range from an almost symmetrical circle to a "free-formed" blotch to give each fish a unique and individual appearance.

House the One Spot Foxface in a 70 gallon or larger aquarium. It is a very peaceful species except when housed with other rabbitfish. The One Spot Foxface may be housed with more aggressive fish since predators and aggressors will tend to leave it alone because of its venomous dorsal spines. Rabbitfish are generally reef-safe if they are well fed. If not, they may nip at or consume some species of LPS and soft coral polyps.

The diet of the One Spot Foxface should include fresh vegetables and algae. Provide a variety of prepared herbivore foods rich in vegetable matter and supplement diet with algae sheets to help reduce potential nipping damage to soft and hard coral polyps.

Approximate Purchase Size: Small: 1-1/2" - 2"; Small/Medium: 2" to 3"; Medium: 3" to 4"; Medium/Large: 4" to 6"; Large: 6" to 8"

Customer Testimonials

Angelina F Uncasville , CT
This is our favorite fish in our tank. He is peaceful and a joy to watch. It took him a while to acclimate to the tank and to people around the tank. But, after about a month, he stopped being so shy and is the "King" of the tank!!! He turns black when he is stressed out. We are very happy to have this fish in our tank.

My Foxface is one of my favorite fish in my tank. She took a while to get used to the tank, but after that she begged for food and was a fantastic edition to the tank.
