General information about Copperband Butterflyfish
The Copperband Butterflyfish has a long nose, narrow mouth that is used to hunt in crevices and holes for food. The Copperband Butterfly is yellow-orange with vertical bands that have the black edging. The fish has a false eyespot in the rear of its dorsal fin. It should be kept in large reefs or in tranquil community tanks. It is best to keep it on its own without other butterflyfish species or conspecifics and shouldn’t be kept in a home aquarium with stress-producing fish. Be cautious when keeping the fish in an aquarium with reef fish. They could attack invertebrates, particularly anemones and feather dusters. They make excellent fish to control the glass anemones, or aiptasia in reef aquariums.
