Four Eye Butterflies (Med 2-3 inches)

The Four Eye Butterfly gets its name for the two false eyes located on both sides of their body just in front of their caudal fin. It has also been known to swim upside down, and occasionally squirt water above the waterline. The Four Eye Butterfly is peaceful, most commonly found in shallow waters around coral reefs alone or in bonded pairs, who form a lifelong partnership. Most active during the day, they change color and seek shelter for sleep in the evening, as they are highly vulnerable to larger predators. The tank you put your butterfly in should be full of peaceful tank mates. Known for being hardheaded,the Four Eye Butterfly can be somewhat difficult to entice at first. To encourage eating, offer live, brine shrimp, clam, and squid or shrimp. Once eating regularly, you can begin feeding frozen brine shrimp.

    Bigger than expected and very healthy. Butterflies can be hard to get eating but this one was looking for food right out of the bag! Very happy with this fish

    The butterfly fish I really wanted was out of stock, so I thought I'd give this one a shot. Glad I did. Nice addition to my tank. It is healthy and very active. Would buy again.

    What a great fish! I just received him a few hours ago and he is already doing fantastic in his new home. He was very active in the bag and immediately started swimming and picking at my rock after proper acclimation. He is super beautiful, the picture does not do him justice!
