Nice lobster! Would he be hard to find in our 66?? Also, what do you guys know about the foxface lo? I know it is reef safe with caution, but is it 50/50?

You have to have lots of LR for them to hide in. They wont stay out in the open and only come out at night when the lights go out. As far as the foxface they are herbivores. I have never had any problems with them when I had some years ago. They need plenty of vegetable matter to eat.

Their back fin is venomous so you just have to be careful not to get scratched by it .

I hear it's kinda like a beesting. I have heard that about lionfish as well, although thankfully I have never had incidents with either. That said, I have also heard that if you are allergic to beestings, you are likely to have a similar (dangerous) reaction to the foxface and the lionfish. If you are allergic I would strongly recommend the big thick Coralife gloves when you are working in the tank.

Ok thats not bad at all! How would other fish react to being stung? Is it deadly to them?

Also, are they coral and invert safe?

If the fish were to get stung, especially for a lion, not sure about the foxface but they usually die. Good luck 😊

Idk about a fox face stung but a lionfish will HUUUURRRRTT!!!! Like 5x more painful than a bee. Definitely not an experience you'll want to face lol so hope that the foxface venom is less painful lol
