Tank compatibility[edit | edit source]

Peaceful towards other fish except for other Rabbitfish, keep one of these to a tank. Can be housed with semi-aggressive fish which tend to leave the Bicolour Foxface alone. It may nip some hard and soft coral polyps if not kept well fed.


Diet[edit | edit source]

An omnivore but leans more towards the herbivore side. Love seaweed sheets, flake food, mysis shrimp, brine shrimp, krill, reef plankton, spirulina flakes etc.


Feeding regime[edit | edit source]

Feed twice a day. Leave seaweed sheets on a veggie clip for all day grazing.
