Butterflyfish are not recommended for reefs as they will pick at or eat a wide variety of corals, fan worms, and other invertebrates. Most Butterflyfish are known to pick at Aiptaisia, a parasitic anemone.
If you will have more than two Auriga Butterflyfish or another Butterflyfish of similar coloration, we recommend you add them to your aquarium at the same time.
