Raccoon Butterfly

  • Chaetodon Butterflyfish should be added to well established aquariums with plenty of room to swim.

  • Plenty of rock work should be provided for grazing and hiding.

  • Chaetodon Butterflyfish may pick at corals and crustaceans. A diet of meaty and algae based foods should be provided multiple times daily.

  • Multiples can be added simultaneously to a large aquarium.

  • Chaetodon Butterflyfish tend to be shy and peaceful but can become territorial if their aquarium is to small.

We recommend a minimum aquarium size of 100 gallons or larger for this species.
