Origin

Sexing

Tank compatibility

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

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

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