Copperband Butterfly

Your live fish may not match the image shown due to natural variations in each species. Each companion animal is different in shape, color, and personality.

Copperband Butterfly

The distinctly yellow-orange striped Copperband Butterflyfish uses its narrow snout and mouth to pick food out of crevices and cracks. It should be noted that the Chaetodon rostratus does best as the only butterflyfish, and in peaceful community tanks. In a reef tank, the Copperband Butterflyfish may pick on anemones, feather dusters, some soft corals, some large-polyped stony corals, and zoanthids. This fish also works great to control the pesty glass anemone, which are also known as aiptasia.
