I think the golden butterfly fish is very pretty. It has a wonderful bright color. I think that it should be my pet someday but my parents will never approve.

This fish was definately a little more challenging to keep. Though we got it to eat live daphnia(spelling?), and then some scraps of cut up shrimp. It didn't eat at first, and it didn't eat at every feeding, but it figured it out. But it is so beautiful in our tank! The brilliant white seemed to sparkle in the light and this is one of my favorite all-time fish, bear in mind I haven't kept angelfish yet. I found when i was persistant and kept at it, we finally got it acclimated and it started eating progressively.
One tip, I think it helps with new fish, especially if they are fresh from the ocean that it has some hardy tank buddies to "show it" the ropes and what is food in it's new tank setting. Like learning from observation.

I have a CBB with a mated pair of blue-jaw triggers, one large Naso Tang, Yellow Tang and Sailfin Tang. Since the CBB was the last addition (not a good idea) it was chased mercilessly -- I was concerned it might not make it. Then, it came out and began eating frozen mysis and brine shrimp. It's doing very well now and everyone in my 125g get along well.

Remember, Black and White Heniochus are generally not reef safe. It was too late for my beautiful & pricey acan but at least the clams recuperated.

I have kept one of these for a little over 6 months now. They are very calm beautiful fish. Mine lives with a blue tang, blonde naso tang, orangefin tang, a sleeper goby, and a threadfin butterfly. This fish has never messed with any other fish. The blue tang used to try and pick on it because it was the smallest fish in the tank, but the chevron butterfly was always to fast for him. They get along fine now. Great fish!

My Raccoon Butterflyfish is a juvenile. My lunula is the most active fish in my aquarium, constantly swimming back and forth. My lunula gets along with my Saddleback Clownfish and Skunk Shrimp; however, my Longnose Hawk and Watchman Gobby tend to go on the defensive whenever my lunula swims close by. I've noticed that during the night, my lunula tends to "sample" my Spotted Cardinalfish's tail.

I have not had my butterfly fish long and it seems fine with all my other fish. Sometimes it chases my blue tang around but does not attack any of the fish. I think it might have white spot and there are lots of medicines to treat this, but they dont get it as much as tangs.

I have a Raccoon butterfly along with a wrasse, a devil firefish, and a seabass among others. a funny setup really, but they all seem to get on very well. the first day that i caught my lunula, i did not feed any of the fish for the day, and surprisingly, the next day when i fed my fish, the lunula was the first to eat the tubifex i fed them.
so...... where theres a will, theres a way.
