Just a warning the foxface lo can be a coral nipper, we had to return ours since it wouldn't leave the brains alone. We also had a orange spot rabbit fish which is in the same family I believe and he also wouldn't leave the brains alone. He is living in our sump now.

Both left no horrible damage but our brains were closed up for months and we couldn't figure out why.

I soo didn't know that! Thanks for the warning! I don't think I will be getting another brain coral, kinda still jaded from the one I had that didn't make it. Did it nip at any other corals? I have over 20 I think, pretty much everything else from zooa's to sps.

Thanks again kelsey!

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I would ditch the blue tang and get the foxface, if I am not mistake the blue tangs are suppose to have 180 gallon minimum anyway.

I was thinking it would be my centerpiece fish LOL. But the LO might work out instead. According to liveaquaria its a 125g min. I'm looking at the caribean/atlantic blue tang.

from what live aquaria says that the Lo can feed on all sorts of LPS and softies.

the blue tangs are just an awesome fish, i wouldn't try the want to trade it out for a foxface

Yeah, after all this work and money to get a 6 foot tank I should have as many tangs as I can LOL.

The LO is just so cool looking.....but if he nips corals I will have to pass....
Maybe I'll lean back towards a schooling fish. I want color in the tank so the blue and yellow tang should be quite bold. I was looking at lyretail anthias which are red/yellow/orange-ish. Thats most of the colors I like so maybe I'll just do the 2 tangs and anthias.

Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Blue Tang

Live aquaria sites 180 as the minimum.

I had a post about the foxface a little while back, because I saw Live aquaria said reef safe with caution. Everyone said they had never seen theirs nip at anything.

Not to say that they won't, but everyone seemed to have no issue with them, my LFS has one in his 300 gallon reef.
