Yellow Head Butterflyfish Description
The Yellow Head Butterflyfish has an oval-shaped body that is pale in color with fins that are yellow. Six thin horizontal lines are visible across its midsection. Its snout is yellow and is long and protruding to dig small organisms out of crevices in live rock.
This butterflyfish species is a moderately tough fish when it begins to eat in captivity. However, it can differ in individuals. They must be kept with peaceable tank mates and have plenty of swimming space within the tank. They can be added to the tanks if they are done in tandem and could be kept alongside other species of butterflyfish. A tank that is equipped and has plenty of rocks for food and shelter is ideal. It will nip coral and invertebrates, and is not reef safe.
