    I have been looking for info about the Foxface, but have come up short - just for those who with just say ":googlenub:"

    What is the difference etween the One Spot Foxface and the plain yellow? Or is it simply the same? The information I have found is always speciffic to the one or the other and I can't find factual info distinguishing one from the other other than the spot - so what is the value, or non-value of the spot??

    I have one without the spot, he/she is very happy. Eating well, interacts in my tank well, doesn't eat my soft corals at all - just generally a shy fish, other than that, I got no problems with it at all. I was just wondering what the differences were between them

    I've seen pics of Lo Vulpinus with and without the rear spot.
    They are only reported to come from the Pacific ocean

    It appears that the only difference is the spot, neither more saught after then the other. I have noticed that mine does eat like crazy, as much Nori as I can supply, it will hover around and nibble constantly - I guess rather that than chomping on my corals...
