This species, like other Tangs, prefers a vegetarian diet, so tank algae and vegetables are a must. This species is safe with small fish but is best kept as a single specimen in a large aquarium. aquarium choice. Unfortunately, some of this coloring is lost as the fish gets older. Although some aquarists feel the Hippo can be kept with members of the same species, it is best to limit your tank to one unless you have a very large tank. These vegetarians will also accept food such as brine shrimp most of the time.
A condition known as head and lateral line erosion, abbreviated HLLE, appears to be caused by an insufficiency of some important food component. It most often develops in vegetarian or mostly vegetarian fishes, such as tangs, angelfish, and damselfish. Areas around the face and gill covers lose coloration and take on an eroded appearance. The fish looks debilitated, although it may feed and swim normally. Eventually, the problem spreads along the lateral line, giving the whole fish a decidedly wretched look. HLLE can be prevented, and in mild cases reversed, by feeding a diet rich in natural seaweeds. If you plan on keeping any of the fish susceptible to this problem, make sure you avoid trouble by feeding them correctly.
Choosing foods appropriate for your aquarium should pose little difficulty if you keep a few basic points in mind. Saltwater fish tend to be specialists when it comes to food. Quite a few vegetarians exist, for example. Some of them feed on many types of algae, others need a specific kind. Carnivores can usually be satisfied with a varied diet, but some feed only on specific classes of food, such as crustaceans. Many predatory saltwater fish need the movement of living prey to stimulate their feeding response, and only learn to eat nonliving foods as a result of the aquarist's efforts. I have already mentioned that species with strongly specialized feeding requirements, such as coral-eating butterflyfishes, should be avoided altogether. I provide feeding recommendations at various points throughout the book, usually when a given type of fish is first discussed. Commercial fish foods can consist either of a single ingredient, such as freeze-dried brine shrimp, or a compound of many...
The Foxface Rabbitfish is a vegetarian. The Foxface Rabbitfish is a vegetarian. This is the most common Rabbitfish kept in captivity (see page 75). This fish is a vegetarian, so an aquarium with lush algal growth is preferred. It will, however, accept a variety of foods as long as vegetable matter is presented. The Foxface can be aggressive toward its own kind, so it's best to keep only one. Similar species include the Onespot Foxface Rabbitfish (Siganus unimaculatus) and Magnificent Rabbitfish (Siganus magnifica).
