With such vivid color and peaceful demeanor, its surprising that Rabbitfish are one of the most dangerous fish in any reef system. In addition to a handsome profile, rabbitfish are known for their venomous dorsal fin spines, which will inflict a painful sting on contact. They are colorful, and have well developed, venomous dorsal and anal fin spines. Please use extreme caution when handling this amazing fish.
