The offspring of Bodianus vulpinus are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Bodianus vulpinus, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Bodianus vulpinus, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.
The name Bodianus vulpinus was incorrectly applied to the Foxfish in many early field guides, a pigfish that is probably more prominent in coastal waters of Western Australia. The true Western Pigfish was long thought to be the same as the Eastern Pigfish, but the two are separable by details of the colour pattern.
