OOO what is that rabbit you posted Mr X? I know I have seen it before but cant remember which one it is. lol

I have a rabbit in the 180g already, so not sure if two would get along if I ever have to move the fish from the 90g to the 180. The rabbit I have is also on the aggressive side as he is just as big as my blue hippo tang and hangs with all the tangs like he is one of them. One of the few fish the tangs didn't attack from day one or harass in any way. hehe

Next trip to a lfs I will look into the trigger and see whats available as far as rabbits. I would think I might have to order a cool rabbit as I have never seen many cool ones in the stores.

They call that an orange spot rabbit (siganus guttatus). Not expensive.

I believe that is a Gold Spot (sig punctatus). I had a Yellow Blotch and they have the big "blotch" towards the back. Both beautiful and both get over a foot long. Mine would not leave my Yellow Tangs side.

Those are some awesome looking fish! I'm digging the rabbit idea even more now. The trigger almost had me but it's so unknown to me I just really cant commit. lol

Thanks guys, I will look into these splotched/spotted guys.

And just to add to the confusion...Scribbled Rabbitfish (Siganus Doliatus) stay a little smaller (10" max) and if you can find one with darker lines, they are gorgeous. I've seen more that look washed out, but occasionally there is a darker one. I'm considering replacing my spotted with one.

The trouble with online ordering is, you don't know what you get until it's landed. Like vlamingi tangs for instance....most of them are quite dull, but once in a while you get a nice one with blue lips and spots....but the odds....

I totally agree, especially for fish like the scribbled Rabbitfish or even a Blue a Jaw trigger (which are often dull). I have not seen many dull spotted ones and the ones I have seen have been the 12"+ biggies.

Not sure what I will put in the 90g in his place, I was thinking a foxface. We will see. Not in a huge rush to replace him.
Sorry for the passing, Carey.

So you think maybe a blue jaw? I will start scoping out who has what and see if they look like a good fit. I assume I wouldnt want to get a tiny one but getting a larger one I fear might end up like the wrasse that just passed. He was huge when I got him so I only enjoyed his company for a couple years. I worry about the other fish harassing him as well....I had thought of foxfaces since they have a defense mechanism and might be left alone. But no idea how a trigger would react. I know that friend of mine with the trigger couldnt put any fish in her tank let alone her hand for cleaning. I would block the trigger with a HUGE net so she could get into the tank when needed. lol
I think I remember me considering a Blue Jaw for my 125g when I had it...they are advertised as more peaceful than other Triggers, right? But like X said, things can depend of the individual fish. I wonder what makes one species of Trigger more aggressive than another? Then again, there is a similar situation with Clownfish too, I think. I have read that Maroon Clowns tend to be pretty aggressive.

What do you think of something like a Bicolor Angel or another Dwarf?
