Overview

The Orange Butterflyfish, also known as the Sunburst, Brown, Klein's, Corallicola, or Blacklip Butterflyfish, is primarily golden-yellow. It may have either a black or a black and blue eye band.

It may be kept in a 120 gallon or larger aquarium with other butterflyfish, including members of its own species, if they were introduced to the tank at the same time. The Orange Butterflyfish is not reef safe since it may eat leather corals and other soft corals. It is an excellent fish for beginners.

The diet should consist of meaty items such as fish, crustaceans, mysis shrimp, and frozen marine preparations. It needs to be fed at least three times daily.

Approximate Purchase Size: Small: 1-1/2" to 2-1/4"; Medium: 2-1/4" to 3 1/2"; Large: 3 1/2" to 4 1/2"

I have one of these and he is a very sweet fish, although shy at times. He and my Blue Spotted Puffer fish are the best of friends!
