The Yellow Pyramid Butterfly is commonly referred to as the Yellow Zoster Butterfly. With its vivid hue, the Yellow Pyramid Butterfly makes a stunning addition to any aquarium. It mainly eats plankton and is also considered safe for reef aquariums. The Yellow Pyramid Butterfly is quite shy initially and requires plenty of hiding places in the tank, so that it gets acclimatized easily. The Yellow Pyramid Butterfly grows up to 7 inches in the wild but is imported much smaller and needs to be kept in a tank of not less than 55 gallons along with many live rocks that can encourages the growth of natural algae. The Yellow Pyramid Butterfly can be kept singly or in true mated pairs, or even in small numbers. Several feedings a day is necessary for its continued good health.
