Does anyone have any experience with a coral rabbit fish (Siganus Corallinus). I have heard that they sometimes nip or eat Xenia and other softies. I would like to know if any one has any experience with them.

How difficult is it to determine the sex of these fish if looking for a pair? Is the dominate one male or do they tend to be more like the Tangs in regard to sex?

No one really.

What about determining the sex of rabbitfish? is the dominate one the male or are they born with a sex like tangs? or do they change back and forth like redfish?

anyone Bueler?

Where is Harris?

The travel in pairs as adults. Which may indicate that they have a particular sex to start possibly. Like tangs which I think start out as one sex from what I have read. I don't know if it is more common for schooling fish to be a dominance male/female but that seems to be some thing that is common in schooling fish. I wish some one would school me on this.

Perhaps we should state general observance and supposition as fact and get corrected.
