The Yellowhead Butterfly, Chaetodon xanthocephalus, also also known as the Xanthocephalus Butterfly features a gorgeous white and yellow body with a distinct yellow head. Not too many Butterflyfish species have a completely yellow head and face making this species quite unique. Its dorsal and anal fins are also yellow but a more muted mustard color.
Yellowhead Butterflyfish Care Facts:
best kept in a tank of at least 125 gallons (if an individual) or 175 gallons (if multiples)
tanks should have plenty of live rock hiding places and open swimming space
if keeping multiples, they should be introduced at the same time to curb potential aggression
the Yellowhead Butterfly may nip on sessile inverts and corals, but they will also beneficially eat up excess algae in the tank
they will feed on a varied omnivorous diet 2-3 times per day
when paired with other Butterflyfish species, they may become hostile so proceed with caution
