Sunburst Butterflyfish Info
The Sunburst butterflyfish are found in deep lagoons, channels as well as seaward coral reefs. They usually live in pairs, and are often found eating soft coral polyps like Litophyton viridis or Sarcophyton Tracheliophorum. They also hunt for algae and consume zooplankton from within the water column. This tough species can be successfully kept in reef aquariums if it is fed well and is kept in a tank that is not surrounded by harmful soft corals which will not be a good fit. Sunburst Butterflyfish is considered one of the strongest butterflies in the butterflyfish family. in larger aquariums, it could be kept with other tranquil butterflyfish as well as individuals of its own species in the event that they are brought in simultaneously. The fish thrives in mature aquariums that have lots of live rock that the fish can browse through and graze on. Like all butterflyfishes, this one needs high-quality water fully purified and well-oxygenated with areas with decent flow. Also, it is available on the market in the form of Blacklip Butterflyfish or Klein’s Butterflyfish.
