overviewThe Raccoon Fasciatus Butterflyfish, also known as the Red Sea Raccoon Butterflyfish or Diagonal Butterflyfish, is yellow-orange, darker on the upper half of its body, and has a black patch around its eyes. It has dark diagonal lines across its body.
It is a peaceful fish and may reside in a 125 gallon or larger fish-only aquarium with other butterflyfish. It should not be put into a reef tank environment because it will eat invertebrates.
Feed the Raccoon Fasciatus Butterflyfish a small anemone, if at first, it is not interested in eating. Otherwise, feed a varied diet of meaty foods, crustacean flesh, mysis shrimp, and frozen preparations several times daily.
