    Hi All
    i am looking to get a foxface or 2 for my tank.
    i know most fish can only be kept as a singular , but i have read that people sometimes keep 2 different species of the same fish in one tank

    i am wanting to know if anyone has kept 2 foxfaces in a tank ?
    i am looking to add a magnificent foxface and a foxface Lo

    safe or not so safe , if not , i will only keep the magnificent.

    I have seen this combination in a tank before. On some occasions they are tranquil and do their own thing.
    Other times i see the Lo chasing the Magnificint. So i dont know hey. Maybe a hit/miss.

    Goodluck..

    if added same time, i don't think it will be a problem depends tank size as well. They are very passive compared to Tangs

    If you add them at the same time when they are both small you wont have a problem.

    I have had no problems with any of my fish.
    As long as you put them in at the same time when they are small you wont have an issue.
    Here is another example for you.
    Count the Tangs:

    One of my Fox faces died a while back from most likely a heart attack judging by the amount his bugger ate.

    Got her a little friend and they are both very happy in the tank.
    No boxing matches or squabbles.
