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.
The Pearlscale Butterfly is not the ideal choice for a beginner as its needs are very specific. This fish should be kept with peaceful tankmates, fed multiple times per day, and needs a well maintained tank. As with most butterflies, the Pearlscale Butterfly will have trouble acclimating if kept with aggressive tankmates, as well as if the aquarist's arms are in the tank constantly. This fish can be used to control pesky glass anemones, but will not harm soft corals. However, reef tanks are usually not ideal for this species.
