Husbandry

Commentaire d'Helmut Strutz : ces poissons sont très rares et n'existent qu'à des endroits très précis. Ils ne sont quasi pas importés et ceci est une bonne chose. Les essais de maintenance de cette espèce ont pour l'instant démontré qu'il est facile à maintenir. L'espèce mange des polyles coralliens.

Husbandry know-how of owners

A fairly easy and hardy species. Young ones are the most easily adapted to aquarium life. Will eat gut loaded brine shrimp, pods, and corals. As always with most butterflyfishes, it is best to put into quarantine in order to get it eating different foods, and to get it used to humans (as well as to be sure it is disease-free). More are finding their way to the Western Hemisphere in the hobby trade.
