    well, i have the spotless one. I am looking into getting a much bigger one, with the spot on (dont ask me their marine names).

    I know foxies are generally peaceful fish but they may either fight, especially if the system is small or actually get on and I'm leaning to the getting on bit. I've seen foxies many times in pet shops together in tanks and they dont bother one another like regular tangs. My onespot foxy is best friends with my regal tang. Go figure. I think wait for a few more opinions before deciding

    No experience with 2 foxfaces but both of my books say that unless they are a pair then they will fight, plus they are big swimmers so not a good idea if they are going into your 130L tank.
