The foxface rabbitfish is a member of the Siganidae family, common in home aquaria, but native to reefs, lagoons and shallow waters of the Pacific Ocean, particularly Taiwan and New Caledonia.
This fish is easily recognisable by its dorsal fin; usually flattened against the body, when stressed the rabbitfish will raise its spines, giving it a large, serrated appearance,
The foxface rabbitfish has a bright yellow body and a white face with a black stripe from the top of the head, through the eye and to the snout, and a black patch from its pectoral fin to the bottom of its head. At night or when stressed, they can lighten their colouration to a mottled white-brown.
The foxface rabbitfish is primarily herbivorous, requiring a diet of algae. However, it will readily feed on zooplankton if available.
