The Threadfin Butterfly, Chaetodon auriga, has a beautiful yellow body with a hazy blue splotch on its side and black eye band. 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.

This is a great Bluespot Butterfly - Central Pacific who showed up healthy and happy. He was shy at first in my quarantine tank but after moving him over to the main tank he has been quite the showman. Beautiful fish to add to a reef tank.
