This fish is very difficult to mistake for any other butterfly fish. Recommended Tank Size: The Copperband Butterfly should be placed in a 75 gallon tank with a temperature range between 72 - 78 degrees Fahrenheit with a pH level of about 8.1 - 8.4. These fish are very peaceful and should be house with similar tempered tank mates.. Food & Diet: The Copperband Butterfly is a carnivore.

Try feeding the fish live adult brime shrimp mixed with forxen mysis, or live black worms. Level of Care: Difficult Reef Compatibility: Reef compatible with caution, may nip at invertebrates.
