The Latticed Butterfly, Chaetodon rafflesi, has a bold yellow body with a dull edging to the scales giving a lattice appearance and a thick black eye band with a blue patch between the eyes. 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 love this Latticed Butterfly! Pictures don’t compare to the live fish. The new addition improves my saltwater water aquarium. Everyone loves it.
