  • Description

    Please note that the product information displayed is provided by manufacturers, suppliers and other third parties and is not independently verified by Petco.

    The Longnose Butterfly is a bright colored butterfly for fish only aquariums. They are known for getting quite large in wild, but will stay smaller in aquariums at about 9". They won't do well with fish that are overly aggressive, but they will also nip and pick at fish that are very timid. Initially, these butterflies can be shy; making sure there are plenty of hiding places will help them acclimate. Like most butterflies, we don't recommend placing the Longnose in reef aquariums because they are very likely to consume a variety of coral polyps. They have elongated snot that is half black and white, which allows them to get into crevices to feed. The rest of their body is bright yellow with a false eye by the caudal fin. The false eye confuses predators so they aim for that "eye" and it gives the butterfly a chance to get away. The dorsal fins are jagged and can get caught in nets.
