Overview

The 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.

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"
