  • Raccoon Butterflyfish (Chaetodon lunula) 

    The peaceful Raccoon Butterfly not only has the mask of a raccoon but also feeds at night in nature.  As it becomes accustom to aquarium life it tends to eat during the day.  This fish not only picks at corals but also eats anemones including both aiptasia and majano.  If it is having trouble in a FOWLR tank find someone with a small anemone they want to get rid of as this fish will have a hard time passing them up.  If housing the Raccoon Butterflyfish with other butterflyfish put them in the aquarium all at the same time for best results.

    This is a great example of the beauty of a marine butterfly.  Unfortunately butterflyfish are better suited for Fish Only with Live Rock (FOWLR) tanks and not reef aquariums.

    Food variety is the key with all butterflyfish so use many frozen foods in the rotation!  Mysis, brine shrimp and plankton should all be staples with a butterflyfish specific&nb

  • Pearlscale Butterflyfish (Chaetodon xanthrusus) 

    The peaceful Pearlscale Butterfly or Yellowtail Butterfly is a favorite among hobbyists.  It is one of few fish with a true crosshatch pattern on its sides.  There are many look-alike species of butterflyfish.

    This is a great example of the beauty of a marine butterfly.  Unfortunately butterflyfish are better suited for Fish Only with Live Rock (FOWLR) tanks and not reef aquariumsThis fish can be kept with other peaceful fish including other butterflyfish as long as they are added at the same time.

  • Klein's Butterfly (Chaetodon kleinii) 

    Klein's Buttflyfish is also known as Blacklip Butterflyfish, Orange Butterflyfish, Brown Butterflyfish and Sunburst Butterflyfish.  This is quite possibly the easiest of all butterflyfish to keep in the home aquarium.  Despite the fact it may eat soft corals it is generally very peaceful with all fish including other butterflyfish including other Klein's as long as all were introduced at the same time.

  • Black & White Heniochus (Heniochus acuminatus) 

    The fish with many names, Heni, Heniochus, Bannerfish, and Poor Man's Moorish Idol are the most common.  This is generally a peaceful fish that will get some size.  It will tend to pick at stony coral polyps but some hobbyists have been able to work them into reef tanks.  This is a candidate for schooling providing the housing is very large.

    This omnivore would appreciate lots of meaty frozen foods in it's diet.  Plankton and mysis shrimp would be very appreciated.
