The Longnose Butterfly, Forcipiger longirostris, is one of the most suited-for-the-aquarium butterflyfish in the trade. It generally adapts to captive feeding quickly overcoming one of the most common problems of keeping butterflies in the home aquarium. The aptly-named Longnose Butterfly has a thing protruding mouth resembling needle-nose pliers that is uses to pick at its prey. It has a yellow body with a black face and a notable false eyespot on its tail. It is best kept in tanks of at least 55 gallons with plenty of live rock as it likes to inhabit rock overhangs and hide in the crevices. Like most butterflies, the Longnose Butterfly will pick at inverts and corals so it is not considered reef safe. They are suitable to be kept with most fish species but should not be housed with members of its own species. Overall, this fish is wonderful for a fish only tank as it is one of the few butterflies that does really well in the home aquarium.
