The Metallic Foxface rabbitfish is sometimes called the metallic fish, but that name usually refers to Siganus magnifica, so the name Foxface is usually used in the trade Some local fish stores may simply call them A Silver Rabbitfish The Metallic Foxface rabbitfish are active fish, although easily frightened They come out of the Pacific Ocean, although not overly popular near Hawaii They are a very bright yellow color, with a black spot near the rear of them, and white and black on their head for contrast

A very pretty fish, and when the spines are erected, they are quite a show.

Fortunately, the Metallic Foxfaced rabbitfish are quite peaceful in the aquarium They are seldom aggressive towards new additions, even if they are the same color and shape However, due to their poisonous, turn off the lights for 48 hours after adding new fish to the tank

This is one of the best ways to control aggression towards new additions Except in groups in larger aquariums, it is best to have only one Foxface per tank The results of combining them with other Rabbitfish species, like the Spotted Rabbitfish, cannot be generalized upon as of yet

While Metallic Foxface rabbitfish are peaceful, the fish can hold their own in a tank quite well.
