    hey all
    last few weeks noticed some odd behaviour from my foxface !!! seems to love to hang on/with my huge 'shroom !
    it doesnt bother the 'shroom at all !!
    doesnt pick !!
    just hangs around and often lies on it at a 30 degree angle !!!
    whatchya think ?

    no worries

    heya . . don't stress bout him at all, its very normal behavior for a fox face .
    they often go and rest in soft corals, have even had one that adopted a sinularia branching soft coral and would rest in it often, and even sleep in it at night.

    regards

    if he is eating all is good, they do have some strange traits, mine zooms thru the powerheads current and swims like its a treadmill

    agreed foxy's can do soem odd things, does he change color at all when he is in the shroom? they will often go blotchy and brown to blend into a coral and can look really strange. fun fish though :)

    Mine is the funniest. When I ever I put the tongs in the tank to pick something up the fox face goes brown and pretends he is part of the rock.
