Live Arrival Guarantee

The Pearlscale Butterflyfish is a peaceful fish and can get up to 6 inches. They will need an aquarium of at least 90 gallons with plenty of live rock to hide and graze on. They are not considered reef safe as they are known to nip soft and stony corals. They might also eat aptasia but guaranteed they will. They should be housed with other peaceful fish. If you want to house with the same species then they should be introduced at the same time. Their diet consists of meaty foods, freeze-dried, fresh or flake food. Please also provide regular vegetable food sources and vitamin boosting supplements.

This fish is guaranteed for live arrival.
