Foxface is rabbitfish and I have one for algae controlThere are plenty of highly popular fish in the trade, some people like an oddity or something rare just because it's not something that you see regularly. There are other fish that you seem to see in almost every tank you look at. I'm interested to know what fish people think are overrated. That is, you think they are far more popular than you think they deserve to be and wouldn't want to own if someone was willing to give you one free (assuming it wasn't due to compatibility or size issues).
For me, yellow tangs and foxfaces are top of the list. They're probably both poplar for the same reasons, bright yellow colour and good algae eaters. I've just never seen the appeal. I love tangs and rabbitfishes, I'd have one (or more) of each in any reef tank I own provided they were big enough, but I just can't get on board with these 2 fish.
Mine were hiding a lot, even disappeared for 3 months. Since they decided to come out of hiding, they are always on the front of the tank. The speed with which the hide is amazing to see, even though they are so fast, I do not really see it happening. But now they come back in a few minutes, and stay out.I've got two fire fishes so far, one was regular pink one and the other is Helfrichi. They always on the fron of the tank. Yes they hide when frightened but only for a bit and I don't see them getting frightened that easily tho. I see them all the time
Some Amphiprion/Premnas (The common ones - Rarer wild ones aren’t as bad)
Certain Centropyge spp.
Pygoplites diacanthus (Small CB)
Most Pseudocheilinus spp.
And that’s just the beginning of my list
