  • Description
  • The Ornate Butterflyfish is a truly stunning butterfly. Ornate Butterflyfish have a mostly white body with strong yellow to orange diagonal yellow stripes. Ornate Butterflies also have strong black vertical stripes over their face.

    Ornate Butterflyfish reach a maximum adult size of around 8 inches and need to be kept in tanks that are at least 125 gallons in size. Ornate Butterflies are peaceful fish and shouldn't bother other fish or inverts in your tank. Ornate Butterflyfish do like to eat coral tissue though, making them a bad choice for reef tanks.

    Ornate Butterflyfish will flourish in medium to large fish only tanks with other peaceful to semi-aggressive fish. They will add a huge splash of color to any tank. Ornate Butterflyfish prefer a tank with lots of live rock for them to hide in if they feel threatened and also to pick at between feedings.

    Ornate Butterflyfish are omnivores and do best on a diet that is rich in both meaty and green foods. Foods like small pieces of fresh seafood like clams and shrimp will get your Ornate Butterflyfish eating. Over time other prepared foods like mysis and brine shrimp can be added to their diet along with high quality flake and pellet foods as well as high quality frozen foods.
