    thats alot of fish in a 300l tank. Six tangs and a foxface is pushing it a little. Id be careful to add more fish. I know its tempting to collect as many fish as you can cause they free. Keep in mind what filtration you running and if it can cope with the sudden increase in bioload.

    Just to let you know the name of that fish is a strepie/ karanteen (Sarpa sarpa).

    They grow to around 30cm and feed almost exclusively on red seaweeds as adults as they are herbivores. A very low amount of animal matter is eaten in the form of some snails and other molluscs.

    Hope that helps a bit:)
