Fast Facts This species can be successfully housed in the home aquarium if you keep it with peaceful tankmates and provide it a varied diet. Like any butterfly, if it is picked on initially or feels a threat from tankmates, it may refuse to feed. It should be kept in a big tank with plenty of swimming room. It may quarrel with other chaetodontids, (which is a good thing, since it means it isn't a winpy as some butterflies) but usually ignores other fish species. Provide it with a varied diet.
