The Vagabond Butterfly, Chaetodon vagabundus, features a sleek silvery white body with intersecting faint black diagonal lines, two dark black bands over its eyes, and a bright yellow tail.
Vagabond Butterflies are best kept in pairs so long as they are introduced at the same time. Tanks should be at least 150 gallons with plenty of live rock and open swimming space. Increase tank size for multiple individuals.
They are best kept in a FOWLR tank as they are prone to nip on corals and sessile inverts. Relatively difficult to care for in captivitiy, the Vagabond Butterfly should be reserved for an experienced aquarist. They will feed twice daily an omnivorous diet and can be coaxed into feeding by creatively placing food inside a dead coral skeleton to emulate their natural feeding behaviors.
