With a white body and diagonal stripes forming chevron-like markings, the Vagabond Butterflyfish makes a captivating addition to any tank. It thrives well in a temperature range of 75-82 degrees Fahrenheit and pH of 8.1-8.4. The Vagabond Butterfly prefers to live in pairs and grows up to 9 inches in length in the wild but is imported much smaller, therefore needs a large aquarium of 55 gallons. It mainly feeds on algae, anemones, and coral polyps, accepts most meaty preparations. The Vagabond Butterfly is not a good choice for a beginner aquarist and is considered difficult to keep and feed. The Vagabond Butterfly may nip over the corals as food and is considered unsafe to keep in reef tank. It is considered one of the most durable butterfly fish. The Vagabond Butterfly should be housed in a large aquarium with plenty of swimming space. Juvenile Vagabond Butterflyfish resembles the adults, but has a black spot at the rear of the dorsal fin.
