The Eclipse Butterfly, Chaetodon bennetti, has a brilliant yellow body with a black splotch over the eye outlined in white as well as one black spot on the body also outlined in white. They are 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. Since they are more sensitive than most other Butterflies, they are recommended for experts only.

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.

Very nice reef fish. Eclipse Butterfly cleans detritus in the live rock. Doesn't intrude on the reef. Easy keeper.
