The Black and White Heniochus Butterfly, Heniochus acuminatus, has a bold pattern of white and black bands contrasted with bright yellow fins and it has a wonderful long extension to its dorsal fin. They are very hardy and peaceful and can be kept with other peaceful fish, but may become aggressive towards other Butterflies with a similar pattern or coloration in smaller tanks.

They are also not reef safe since they will nip at and eat soft corals and stony polyps as well as ornamental shrimp, tube worms and anemones. Diet should include a variety of mysis and vitamin enriched brine shrimp, spirulina, nori, seaweed, marine algae, and algae based foods, 2-3 times daily.

Small one sent to me but very hardy. Was a bully in my quarantine so I moved him only after 1 week. Aggressive feeder. Had him eating from my hand in 2 days. Great fish and great price.
