The Blacklip Butterfly is commonly known as Klein?s Butterflyfish, Klein?s Coralfish, Brown Butterflyfish, Sunbust Butterflyfish, Whitespotted Butterflyfish, Yellowspot Butterflyfish, Blue-head Butterflyfish and Corallicola Butterflyfish. Since it might topple some soft corals and leather corals, the Blacklip Butterfly is considered a reef safe species but with caution. It can be kept along with other butterflyfish, only if it is introduced all together to a tank at the same time to avoid territorial issues. The Blacklip Butterfly is easy to care for and makes an excellent choice for beginners. It should contain a varied diet that may include meaty items such as fish preparations, prepared foods, crustaceans, Mysis shrimp, and frozen marine preparations. The Blacklip Butterfly needs to be fed at least three times daily for its continued good health. We recommend you to add it in a larger aquarium of minimum 55 gallons along with enough hiding places and live rocks. The Blacklip Butterfly thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit and pH of 8.1-8.4. It grows up to 6 inches in the wild and features hair like teeth that enables it to pick out small organisms inaccessible to most other fish for eating. With its beautiful composed color combination, the Blacklip Butterfly fish makes a captivating addition to any tank.
