Husbandry

Largement répandu dans le Pacifique Ouest. Il est également trouvé au sud du Japon jusqu'en Nouvelle Zélande (zone subtropicale). Rudie Kuiter prétend avoir capturé un juvénile de cette espèce dans le port de Sydney et il a réussi à le faire grandir en aquarium à une température de 19 °C. En mer cette espèce est souvent rencontrée en grand groupe nageant en pleine eau et se nourrisant de plancton. En aquarium il va certainement s'attaquer aux éponges et aux coraux. Apparemment cette espèce nettoie aussi d'autres grands poissons pélagiques.

Chaetodon guentheri also known as Günther's Butterflyfish or Crochet Butterflyfish is mostly white to pale yellow with small dark spots that form irregular lines. The rear part of the body, soft dorsal fin and anal fin are yellow. A black bar passes through the eye.

Günther's Butterflyfish is found in tropical and temperate marine waters throughout the Western Pacific. Mainly found on rocky and coral reefs in sponge zones and deep water occurrence is habitat related. Juveniles are seen at depths between 10-30m, whereas adults are found at depths from 20m to at least 50m.

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.
