The Punctato Butterfly, Chaetodon punctatofasciatus, has a mustard yellow color with a combination of black stripes and black spots and a bright orange band near its tail and a unique cat-eye-like band over 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.

Pretty butterfly. Very shy at first and would not eat until the 3rd day or so. Now he is quite bold and comes right out when fed. Good looking fish for the money.

Cute fish, started eating the day after I received it. Nice and active too.

This is a very good value for the size, very active, all over the place with the yellow tang.
