    Looking for some advice as I’m very new to the marine world... We have had our tank set up since 14th December, adding our first fish (pair of clowns) on 13th February and then on 19th February we added a yellow Tang and racoon butterflyfish (it is now 21st February). The butterflyfish won’t...

    So I just added a threadfin butterflyfish to my tank, and he keeps going into my bullseye pistol shrimps lair. And when he does my pistol shrimp looks like he is attacking him but my butterflyfish just stays still. However my pistol shrimp isn't cocking his claw or clicking to scare him away. I...

    Recently purchased one , seems quite shy and didn't eat at first but now she's starting to eat flake food, anything else I can feed her? Anyone ever kept this type of butterfly fish ?

    Hello, I'd love to get one of the prognathodes butterfly fish because of their small size (how big is the smallest and the biggest of these butterflies?) I've always enjoyed the look of the butterflyfish, but really don't want too many fish that grow over 4" in my tank. I have a 72 gallon...

    So, this is a pretty random question, and it just came across my mind. But food wise, would these 3 work together? I have kept the copperband and mandarin together in a reef before, and there were no problems. But I am curious as to wether this would be too much of a battle over copepods and...

    the tank is a metre in length (slightly over 3ft) so is there any butterfly fish that would do well in a tank this size ? i've decided to leave my tank as a fowlr so if it's not reef safe it doesn't really matter :)

    As a relatively new reefer, I am perhaps freaking out over nothing. But I would rather know than be ignorant. I have had the butterfly just over a week now. He appears to eat mysis and the odd bit of flake aswell as algae and is always very active. So the problem is, I have been at home all...

    The Raccoon butterflyfish is one of my favourite fish and I have been told many conflicting things about it. I am however, strongly considering purchasing one and wanted to know two things. 1) Quantify if you can please, just exactly what their appetite for corals is, if they really have one at...

    I recently acquired a pair of adorable true percs. I have had them for a few days now and they appear in perfect health and shape, and are always active (they are hosting at my pump). Despite this, it seems almost impossible to get them to eat. They are so small at the moment truthfully I can't...

    Recently bought a Copperband butterflyfish, and he wasn't doing too hot at first. I got him and he had ich. A few days of treatment, ich is gone. After this I thought, wow, I am truly amazing. Since all of my friends couldn't get their ich infected butterflyfish to survive. However, mine still...

    Hey guys, im planning on purchasing a butterfly for my FOWLR tank. I know they are not considered easy fish to keep, but I have spoken to many other people saying otherwise. Any ideas? i really am interested in the Hiniochus, Pearlscale, Pakistani and Copperband. Any help would be appreciated :arg:

    Hello everyone, I was just wondering if the Auriga Butterfly or Saddleback butterfly were to be safe with soft corals such as Kenya Tree Coral or Toadstool Coral? Thank You
