This is a great peaceful and colorful reef fish for beginner aquarists. It is an excellent fish for removing bryopsis algae from reef aquaria. Foxfaces have venomous dorsal spines, so caution should be taken when handling fish or cleaning inside the tank (keep track of this fish when you have your hands in the tank). It can be aggressive towards other types of rabbitfishes, so avoid mixing them in smaller tanks.
