Golden Butterflyfish Information

The Golden Butterflyfish Chaetodon semilarvatus is an extraordinary beauty that hails out of the Red sea. It is frequently seen in coral reefs and is often seen hanging beneath the Acropora Plate corals. It is an ideal fish for divers who want to observe and take photos of, and is typically frightened, which allows it to be approached from a distance. This beautiful fish is highly sought-after by aquarium enthusiasts.

This is a popular butterfly fish. It’s an incredible species due to its dimensions, vivid colors and graceful swimming moves. Adults can grow to incredible lengths of around 12 inches (30 cm) in the wild, however, they’re more common at approximately 9 inches (23 centimeters). The color pattern is impressive. There’s a strong dark blueish mask that contrasts nicely against its bright yellow body, and the delicate striping of red. These characteristics have been influential in many other popular names under which it’s called, such as Masked Butterflyfish, Bluecheek Butterflyfish, Blue Mask Butterflyfish, Red-lined Butterflyfish, Addis Butterflyfish, and Blue Cheeked Butterflyfish.
