Remember the fancy fish that i bought the Rabbit fish. Well this moring iwas up early to see the missed out to work for 0700 and my lights are off just the 150 floos light on it. So there is the rabbit fish, te one that has been nipping on everything in the tank.. So turn off the pumps and the lights and in I went with my head lamp on. Caught him in like 3 mins waited for him to get in the open and hang out by a corner thinkingthat he is cammed up


SORRY. I caught you. I need a QT tank.

That's too bad, such a pretty fish! I have to admire your patience with him, it's been what 4 or 5 months since you got him? How much has he grown?

From the looks of it I would say gold/orange-spotted rabbitfish (siganus guttatus).

Yeah I can see that now. There was no pic before. What a beautiful fish, too bad it was nipping at your corals.

Yellow blotch/orange spotted rabbitfish. I know because that is the rabbitfish that I really really really want for my 230g FOLWR tank. You said you're visiting in Jan. right........:wink: What corals was he nipping at?

Well Live Aquaria is wrong I'm afraid...

Guttatus' have a distinct yellow circle near their tailfin.
