Reef Butterflies (Small 1-2 inches)

The Reef Butterfly gets its name for living amongst the tropical reefs across the world. It has also been known to swim upside down, and occasionally squirt water above the waterline. The Reef 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 Reef 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.

    Reef Butterfly

    I have been very happy with the livestock I have received!! I think the other person reviewing Reef Butterfly misunderstood that this is the common name of this butterfly it does not mean that it is reef safe. This is a very hardy butterfly.

    These Two Butterfly were very very nice. They were a great size. The Sad thing was the that the one Butterfly was DOA. The Bag had no Water in the Bag. One other problem the was sold as an Reef Butterfly. Well if you have any Corals in your tank do not put this fish in it. It eat all of my corals over the weekend. (candy cane coral, Polypoid coral, Montipora is gone.)
