    Hi all,

    after picking on the newly introduced cleaner shrimp, my foxface now also starts picking at my Duncan (also introduced last Sunday).

    Is this common behaviour?

    Best regards and thanks,
    Sebastiaan

    Yeah, I've come across quite a few foxfaces that pick at corals.

    They are such nice fish, always active and great colour, but picking LPS is not OK, so he has to move. Kids love how they change colour, so might have to find another fish that does that...
    Tank is too small to add a Foxface again, this one was very little, but don't want to do it again.
