Husbandry

(Rüppell, 1829)

This rabbit fish has been set for identification and was finally identified on basis of his origin from the Red Sea as Siganus luridus.

Siganus luridus is to find mostly in small schools in very shallow water near the floor rather than stony ground. Like all rabbit fishes, also Siganus luridus has a spines in his dorsal fin which he can use as defend against a potential enemie. Because of the Suez Canal, the rabbit fish is found already in the Mediterranean.
