General info about Auriga Butterflyfish
The Auriga Butterflyfish is one of the most popular and easily accessible butterflyfish. It is generally a tough species, in the wild, it can be often found on the outer and inner reef slopes. Like other species of fish, the Threadfin Butterfly’s colors and markings may be different depending on the area of its origin. Red Sea specimens tend to lose the eyespot (false eye that confuses predators) on the dorsal fin. Auriga Butterflyfish is quite shy and requires several hiding places. It is perfectly safe keeping it inside a home aquarium with live rock, but it can attack the rock.
