Saddleback Butterflyfish

The magnificent Saddleback Butterfly is not only a strikingly beautiful species, but is also a compatible with most other fish species, with the exception of other Butterflyfish. One of the more challenging Butterflyfish, this species may or may not acclimate to captive feeding. Ideally, large amounts of algae growth as well as prestine water quality will help the Saddleback to acclimate to feeding. The Saddleback Butterflyfish may be housed in a reef tank, as it will eat the pesty "glass anemone," but will also decimate stony corals and any desireable invertebrates.
