Siganus magnifica (Magnificent Rabbitfish)

Click on the photos to see the high resolution images. Photos taken at "Water Inn" petshop by G.J.Reclos /MCH - Dec. 2005

Maximum length = 9.1 inches (23 cm).

Range : Western Pacific Ocean

Minimum aquarium size : 284 L (75 gal).

Foods and Feeding: Feed a varied diet, mostly vegetable matter. Feed dried and frozen herbivore foods that contain marine algae and the blue-green alga spirulina. Supplement with pieces of zucchini, broccoli, leaf lettuce, and sushi nori (dried seaweed). Feed 2-3 times a day.

Very hardy fish, easily adapts even to new aquariums. Some have been known to survive wipe outs which killed every other fish in the tank. Will browse on desirable and undesirable algae. If well fed will typically ignore corals, although some will nip and even eat large-polyped species and certain soft coral polyps. It will typically ignore all unrelated fish species but will show aggression towards fish of the same genus and - naturally - of its own species. Its spines are venomous, handle with care.
