Siganus Uspi

The Fiji Bicolor Foxface (also known as the Uspi Spinefoot) has a unique body and coloration. Like a reef-barge, the Fiji Foxface will float from end to end of your aquarium grazing on algae growth and bacteria. It is a VERY peaceful species of fish, and a great community addition who will often help tame aggression between other fish. The Bicolor Foxface can shed it's skin mucus layer into the water column when it is irritated. Because of this they tend to be a hardy, disease-resilient fish.

The Bicolor foxface can camouflage it's skin when distressed or at night time while sleeping to hide from predators. Typically the bicolor will take on a cow like pattern, but will return to its normal self quickly. 

Rabbitfish are generally reef-safe if they are well fed. If not, it is possible for them to nip at and consume some species of LPS and soft corals. These reef barges need to eat! 

Caution - The Foxface's dorsal spines are venomous which deters his predators. Although peaceful, he will flare his dorsal fin when startled or threatened and you should be mindful of this while feeding or when placing corals/settings rocks. As long as you are aware of the Foxface's location within your tank, and you don't suddenly place your hand near him, there is limited chance for direct contact. Be cautious while hand feeding.
