• Butterflyfish

  • Butterflyfish are some of the most popular and common fish found in saltwater aquariums. Butterflys have stunning coloration and are very active swimmers, all while staying relatively small. These traits have led to Butterflyfish becoming as popular as they are.

    Some Butterflyfish are considered reef safe, while others tend to pick up coral. We provide detailed information for each Butterfly species as to whether they a good fit of a reef tank or not. Some Butterflyfish even help control pests like aiptasia.

    Butterflyfish can range color to nearly all white to having brilliant orange and red marking on their bodies. Butterflyfish are normally rather hardy fish once they get established and have a good food source. Getting some Butterflys to eat can be hard, making them a bad choice for beginners.

    Below is our full list of Butterflyfish that we keep in stock. If you have any questions about any of the Butterflys listed here, please feel free to contact us.
