The Longnose Butterfly is a yellow fish with a long beak that can originally found schooling around reefs in the Indo Pacific. This Butterfly should be added to a larger tank with peaceful fish. A lot of live rockwork is recommended so this fish can pick in crevices for worms and tiny crustaceans. This Butterfly is relatively easier to care for compared to other Butterflies as they will usually accept frozen foods.
