Teardrop Butterfly

Teardrop Butterfly

Also known as a One Spot Butterfly, Grædende fanefisk (Denmark), Papillon à larme du Pacifique (French), Eenkol-vlindervis (South Africa - Afrikaans), Kikakapu (Hawaii), Kepe susu bulat hitam (Indonesia), or Tifitifi-pulesama (Samoa).

Its name comes from the large black teardrop eye spot on its side. Found in reefs at moderate depths, but has been known in the wild to be found in depths ranging from 3 feet to 180 feet. As with any Butterflyfish, this species may refuse to eat if picked on or bullied. Therefore, this beautiful and hardy species does best with peaceful tank mates. Use caution in reef tanks as this fish will eat invertebrates, soft and hard corals, but also eats filamentous algae.
