The Yellow Blotch Rabbitfish, also called the Orange-Spotted Spinefoot, Orange Spotted Foxface Rabbitfish also known as Gold Saddle Rabbitfish originates from the reefs of the Western Pacific. It’s a species that is gaining popularity among reef-keepers due to its beauty and algae-eating activity.

The body of Yellow Blotch Rabbitfish is brown and is covered with gorgeous orange spots. It is a camouflage design that has a distinctive posterior false eye that is yellow to make predators confused. Due to its dorsal spines that contain venom (which it may be raised when disturbed) caution must be taken when handling it to prevent the danger of being infected.

It requires a 125-gallon or bigger aquarium that has ample swimming space. It is a peaceful species unless it is housed together with other Rabbitfish. The Yellow Blotch Rabbitfish may be kept with fish that are more aggressive and are often placed in pairs. Rabbitfish are generally reef safe if they are fed well. If not, it’s possible to have them nibble at and eat some species of LPS as well as soft corals. Their diet should include algae sheets as well as other food items designed for fish that eat algae.
