I purchased a CBB.. When I added it to my tank, my yellow tang chased it constantly. I ended up taking it out and placing it in another tank. I plan on getting an in tank quarantine box so I can place it in my main tank to protect the CBB. That way my yellow tang will get used to seeing it before I let it loose again. I hope it works.

    What a wonderful fish! (I'm envious, it's true) Those darn yellow tangs love to go after anything they think is a 'yellow' competitor. I think that may be what's happening. Good idea to quarantine (maybe move the tang into a quarantine, re-arrange the tank, then move it back). A great way to help disrupt established ideas of what home is, and get fish to re-evaluate their place in the environment...lol

All i got to say is there's more to 'em than meets the eye! this fish turned out to be very curious and energetic. Unlike other butterflyfish we've had, it ate heartily and aggressively with our clown and damsels and didn't swim away when I get up close to the glass. He's not as pretty as other butterflyfish, but this fish is a joy to own. Can I send in my own pictures fo this fish? I got a cute one!

I saw one of these beautiful little while guys snorkeling today. I live in northern N.S.W, but they are along most of the Australian east coast. Extremely shy fish.

how lucky can you be? I caught a gorgeous gussy at The Heads Knysna (month January 2007). No problem with teaching it to eat. Also a handnet and snorkel and goggles. Thank you. EUGENE

i think people should buy butterflyfish at an adult size such as copperband falculas, collareds, and raccoons. at that size they will be easyer to keep due to their being darker in colour, fatter, tuffer, easier to feed, and bigger to look at.

Linnea Rainford - 2007-03-05
Hello,

My name is Linnea Rainford (just like the fish!). When I first heard about this fish, I was amazed! It seems that not only is my last name the name of a town in England (The Town of Rainford), and the Rainford University, but now a fish too! This fish is an absolutely fascinating subject. I have a huge love for pet fish, and am the very proud owner of several freshwater fish tanks. Being only 15 years old, I'm not exactly rich, but I would love to start a salt-water fish tank. I will be very happy if I can find a petstore (in Ontario) where I could start a saltwater tank for cheap.
Thank-you,
Linnea.

    Linnea, my name is Julio Mendez. I live very far from Ontario. Miramar Fl. I have been doing this 20+ years dont know if you ever set up your saltwater tank. But if you did butterflys they arer very challenging fish. I personally like them just because of that challenge. But anyway when it comes to butterflys make sure to see the fish eating before purchasing.

I think, instead of buying large butterfly and angelfish, it will be wise to buy small and make them grow in our aquarium. Large fishes are more delicate and get stressed easily. However I may be wrong. But according to me 'Always buy small fishes'.....

    God the fish are so much money, your better off buying a bigger fish for the money, it's always a 50/50 chance anyway.

I have bought one Klein butterflyfish from the local marine fish shop, and I have to say that I have fallen in love with this fish.
It is not only hardy, but also clever and cute. I used to put the live Athemias in the strainer and feed my fishes with holding Athemias in the strainer, and suddenly a Klein butterflyfish got into the strainer to eat Athemia, so I could feel his movement, I could really play with him. I recommend beginners to buy this fish. In my opinion, it is fairly pretty. His colour would change to be a bit dull at night time. Now I also have other species of butterflyfish, Angelfish, Clownfish, Wrasses, Tangs, Cardinal, Dottyback as his tankmates, and they can cope well.
