I just recently added a one spot foxface to my tank. I understand they are very skittish fish but he isnt fully coloring up and I was wobdering if this is normal. The fish is only about 2.5 inches at the moment.
75 gallon tank
Ph 8.1
Salinity 1.025
Nitrite 0 ppm
Ammonia 0 ppm 20200804_123139.jpg

normal color changing ,any probs ,come back to here for help,sounds ok in my opinion :)
Thanks man I appreciate it. Foxface are definitely my favorite saltwater fish. He's really entertaining to watch. There is only two other fish in there one being a small valentini about the same size. He follows the valentini everywhere has since day one (no nipping, valentini doesnt mind at all)

If the valentini is similar to my blue spotted, he will limit your choice of corals to mostly softies.
He is the tank star though.
Rabbit is best fish for algae control.
He'll get 6 or 7 inches in a couple of years.

Good to know. Im gonna stick with a fish only tank for a while until I learn a lot more and get more proficient. I plan to bump to a 180 over winter for his growth. My lfs convinced me to buy and start with a nano tank which was a nightmare and to limited so i bumped up quick.

As you know, he'll fit better in the 180.
They get skittish in a 75, at 6".

My valentini and foxface were best friends until valentini died
