Addis Butterfly (Chaetodon semilarvatus)
AKA Golden Butterfly
Suggested minimum aquarium size when adult:
Will eat frozen Mysis, Brineshrimp, Cockle in shell, may take dried foods after a long period in captivity.
Not recommend, but safe with all but the smallest Shrimps, snails, crabs etc.
Peaceful, do not keep with aggressive species. Can be kept singularly, in a pair or a small group. If keeping more than one add them all at the same time.
Occur exclusively in the Red Sea, settle and feed better to aquarium life when small.
