My baby foxface is a machine!

I had no idea they ate algea the way she does. I recently had an outbreak of purple hair and purple leafy algea. I don't really care cause it looks cool but it came into the tank on a coral rock and started to spread. My LFS had baby foxfaces (2 inch) so I thought I'd try one out. In like 3 days this thing has eaten almost all the algea in the tank, its amazing. It eats mysis and pellets too.

I'd reccomend foxfaces for anyone with algea issues for sure.

Yes, you will need to provide sheet on nori as a algae supplement. They are cool though. Mine is really timid but still full of character.

I have a baby fox face too and once she was comfortable in the tank, is out all the time. Mine eats pretty much everything, pellets, nori and mysis
