Great fish.
I have one in my tank. I actually baught it for algae control but mine does not eat any algae except for nori. I don't think it's a particularily difficult to keep fish. Mine eats out of my hand.

Some are known to be a little on the shy side.

Mine likes all types of food (mysis, brine, krill, pellets, flakes and nori)

40 gal tank is way too small for a Foxface.

I have one in my 90g and I think think it's pushing it. They get fairly large, mines 5-6 inches. He was about 3 inches a year ago when I got him. They love to eat and poop a lot.

I have mine in a 65G (4 foot) and I find that it's fine.
