Pakistani Butterfly (aka Red Tailed Butterflyfish)

The Pakistani Butterflyfish, also known as the Red Tailed Butterflyfish, is one of the more peaceful Butterflyfish, ignoring the majority of tank mates. However, this fish should not be housed with bolder, more aggressive fish as that will prevent this species from acclimating to a tank. This fish also requires plenty of swimming room and will eat pesty glass anemones. However, the Pakistani Butterflyfish will eat ornamental shrimps and other sessile invertebrates such as Feather Dusters.
