Two Barred Rabbitfish
The Two Barred Rabbitfish, also known as the Barred Spinefoot, can be found in pairs among the reefs of the Indo-West Pacific. It has a distinct oblong shape and is characterized by a beautiful series of blue markings, a yellow back, and tail. The fish has a black stripe that runs from the bottom of its mouth to the top of the head, obscuring its eyes, and a matching black stripe behind its gill plate. The Two Barred Rabbitfish is generally a peaceful species, except when housed with other Rabbitfish. This species may be housed with more aggressive fish and can be kept in pairs. Its predators will typically leave it alone due to its venomous dorsal spines, which it can raise when disturbed. Rabbitfish are generally considered reef-safe if they are well fed, and they will eat all kinds of macro-algae and even bubble algae. The diet of this fish includes a variety of fresh vegetables and algae. They are reef safe.
