The Burgess Butterfly, Chaetodon burgessi, has a beautiful black and white striped body. 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.

I had never purchased fish for my aquarium online before and I was thrilled when the Burgess Butterfly arrived and very healthy.
