Husbandry

Chaetodon fasciatus est essentiellement trouvé en couple, la découverte de groupes plus important est rare. Ils se regroupent essentiellement lorsque les poissons sont nourris par les touristes (voir photo). Les poisson papillons tabac sont faciles à maintenir. Ils se sont pas difficile à nourrir et acceptent toutes les nourritures de petites tailles, des algues mais également des polypes coralliens. Ils ne sont donc pas appropriés pour un aquarium récifal.

Husbandry know-how of owners

This Red Sea Racoon is often available to North Americans. It is a hardy fish, resisting many diseases to which other butterflyfish seem to succumb. It will tolerate less-than-perfect water quality, for short times.

Getting it to eat can be a challenge, but most will 'follow the leader' and eat what other community tank members wil eat. It is sometimes not assertive at feeding times and may become reclusive.

However, 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). If the aquarist will diligently do this, the fish will start off right and quickly learn who and where its food comes from.

It likes mostly meaty foods (chopped clam, scallop, mysis and brine shrimp. It can get used to most kinds of omnivore foods for marine fishes.
