Also known as a Longnose Butterflyfish, Yellow Longnose Butterfly, Yellow Longnose Butterflyfish, Long-Nose Butterfly, and Long Nose Butterflyfish. With its long and narrow snout, this Butterflyfish picks food out of narrow spaces and crevices. The Long-Nose Butterflyfish tends to adapt to captivity quickly (usually within a few hours) than most other Butterflyfish, making this an excellent first-butterflyfish. However, this species is not for beginners as it requires multiple feedings per day, and tends to nip at certain soft corals, as well as zooanthids, and large-polyped stony corals. Tubeworms and sea urchins are not safe from being nipped at either. This species does best with peaceful tankmates, but also as the only one of its species as the long-nose becomes aggressive towards other fish of the same species. Minimum tank size: 100 gallons
