Tahitian Butterflyfish

Greek Name: Chaetodon trichrous

$119.99

-

The front of the Tahitian Butterflyfish is gray in color, while the rear half is dark to black. It is black in the eye. Its fins are gray.
It is believed that the Chaetodon trichrous requires plenty of space to swim in, as well as an aquarium that is peaceful and tranquil, 70 gallons or more. It can be kept as a single but if it is kept in a pair the two fish must have their aquariums stocked simultaneously. This Butterflyfish can not be considered safe for reefs as it will nip at corals.

 

Its diet should include chopped meats like seafood, fish, crustacean meats, and mysis shrimp. A vitamin supplement with meats can aid in keeping the colors vibrant.
