Klein's Butterfly (aka Blacklip Butterflyfish or Sunburst Butterflyfish)

A great choice for a first Butterflyfish, the Klein's Butterflyfish is also known as the Blacklip Butterflyfish, or the Sunburst Butterflyfish. The eye-band may be either all black or black and blue. This species may occasionally clean its tankmates, but is almost always aggressive towards other Butterflyfish. While this fish can be kept in certain reef tanks, it will also eat soft corals, including leather corals.
