A fairly hardy butterfly that will eat corals and invertebrates, so it doesn’t make a good reef fish. Does well in FO or Fowlr tanks; needs peaceful tank mates. There are a two types, one from the Red Sea and the other from IO and Hawaii. They look very similar except the one from the Red Sea doesn’t have the black stripe that comes across the top of its body to the head.
