How big is the tank? This happens when the fish is in a tank that is too small and it becomes stressed. If the tank is big enough he should calm down soon

Well they are timid fish to begin with. How big is the fox? He should color up and eventually be more outgoing

Yup they get stressed easily, just let him chill. Maybe even turn off the lights and let him be

Foxcaces are nervous little guys. Ours was a spotted mess for a while till I was able to settle him down. Can't remember the reason, but they freak out about everything. Good luck

They are pretty timid overall, but can hold their own in a semi aggressive tank. They have those venomous top fins that protect them. I had mine in with a passer angel and Niger trigger. He did just fine, although the passer did freak him out a bit. Those passer angels are very nasty. Make sure to give plenty of nori or romaine for him to much on, and mine loved pellets and mysis. We gave him back to our Lfs when we only had the 55g. Now we have the 180g and I wish I had him back. Might have to get another.

Buy a few blue green chromis and add to your tank they stay around the top and will help relax the fox face
