Description
The Auriga Butterflyfish, or Threadfin Butterflyfish has a white and yellow body with an elegant crosshatching pattern. There is a vertical black band running down the eyes and a black eye spot at the top corner of the dorsal fin.
 
The Auriga Butterflyfish is one of the best choices for the home aquarium because it will readily accept all types of food.  It can be aggressive with fish that have similar color patterns and shapes.  Provide lots of live rock for grazing and shelter for the Auriga Butterflyfish.  Will pick at corals and invertebrates and is not recommended for a reef tank.
 
To initiate feeding, offer a variety of small frozen foods such as mysis shrimp, enriched brine shrimp and cyclopeeze. Train your butterflyfish to eat Formula One Small Pellets or Flakes 09220 3for a healthy diet.
