Rabbitfish

Rabbitfish

Rabbitfish are one of the few species that will eat problematic Bryopsis algae.

Rabbitfish are one of the few species that will eat problematic Bryopsis algae. Even though these fish are herbivores, use caution if they are to be housed in a reef aquarium, as they may nip at some corals and sessile invertebrates.

Rabbitfish are found in the shallow lagoons in the Indo-Pacific and the eastern Mediterranean, they have small, hare-like mouths, large dark eyes, and a peaceful temperament, which gives them their name. They are colorful, with well developed, venomous dorsal and anal fin spines.

Use caution when handling these fish, as the spines will inflict a painful sting. These fish are very hardy and disease resistant and make an excellent addition to a medium- to large-sized saltwater aquarium.

its diet should consist of a variety of vegetable matter and algae. Feed the Decorated Rabbitfish Red Gracilaria feeding algae, any species of caulerpa and dried seaweed fed with a lettuce clip.
