Spotband Butterflyfish

Spotband Butterflyfish

The Spotband Butterflyfish is one of the most hardy fish and almost no technical care is needed to maintain it. It is found from the Eastern Indian Ocean to Micronesia.

Both males and females measure 4.7 in. While Surgeons and Tangs may react aggressively, this is a peaceful natured fish and should be added before aggressive species. Minimum tank size is 66 gal. If possible, provide filamentous algae in the tank. Although this fish spends most of its time in the open water, the tank should still include hiding spaces.

The Spotband Butterflyfish is an omnivore and will eat a variety of foods. Since its mouth is very small, the food should be very fine.
