The Venomous Foxface is known under several different common names that include Foxface Rabbitfish, Common Foxface, and Foxface Lo. With its spectacular shape and coloration, the Venomous Foxface is easily recognized. Often it is misidentified with its closely relative S. unimaculatus, but the S. unimaculatus features a big black blotch on its sides. The uniqueness of this fish is that it is equipped with stout venomous spines. The Venomous Foxface is a hardy marine species, and should be kept in an aquarium where there is plenty of space to swim around, therefore we advise you not to keep this fish in a tank smaller than 40 gallons. Due to the presence of these spines, the Venomous Foxface can be housed with other peaceful fishes and even with semi aggressive ones as no one dares to come closer to the Siganus vulpinus. The Venomous Foxface cannot be combined with other rabbit fishes unless they are young, and the older specimens form pairs and do well in an aquarium. The Venomous Foxface is known to nip at some soft and hard corals, therefore it is not really considered as reef compatible. It thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degree Fahrenheit, and with pH value of 8.1 to 8.4. Sometimes, the Venomous Foxface might look discolored and this should not be confused as illness. Since the Venomous Foxface is capable of inflicting painful venomous stings, be careful when handling. The Foxface chiefly feeds on algae and other plants in the wild. Also, the addition of algae-based pellets and flakes with fresh vegetables are recommended for its continued good health.
