General information on Decorated Rabbitfish
The Decorated Rabbitfish usually travels in groups among those reefs that are found in Indo-West Pacific. It has an oval shape to its body. It has beautiful yellow marks with an orange tail and back. Its eyes are obscured with a dark stripe that extends from the lower part of the mouth towards the crown of its head. As the black stripe moves past the eye, it turns visible, giving a unique look to the Rabbitfish. It requires a large aquarium. It is a peaceful species, except for when it is kept in a group with other Rabbitfish. The Decorated Rabbitfish may be housed with fish that are more aggressive and may be placed in pairs. The predators of this fish will usually ignore it due to its dorsal spines with venom that it may raise when it is disturbed. It is important to be cautious when handling this fish in order to ensure that you are not injured by its venomous spines. Rabbitfish are usually reef-safe provided they are fed properly. If not, it’s possible for them to nibble at and eat certain species of soft and LPS corals.
