Are you getting any surface agitation from the power heads?

Common behavior.. I don't understand what the problem is.

Your fox face keeps swimming to the top of the aquarium???? Maybe he is hungry

How many times a day should I feed the. I give 1 frozen cube of mices shrimp in the am and 1 frozen cube of red frozen something in the pm with a medicine dropper. So I watch that they are all eating and no food is wasted much for pollution reasons. I have 1 fix face 1 box fish 1 cardinal and 2 blue chromis all small. What do u think ?

Sounds good to me actually. However foxface
are herbivores I think. I had one and fed it krill and stuck an algae strip in the tank. He did great till he outgrew my tank .

Post some pics

He looks kinda skinny but that might just be the pic. Mine had internal parasites I had to treat with medicated food. After that he was far. Before pic

I'd just try putting a clip in the tank and leave a strip of algae on it. Pet-smart carries them as we'll as most lfs.

Mine eats mysis shrimp, pellets and algae. Agree that he looks a bit thin. Try to bulk him up over the next fe weeks.
