The Zoster Butterfly is a peaceful fish, heralding from reefs in the Indian Ocean. This fish is black with a large white band running down the middle of its body. They also have yellow tips on some of their dorsal spines. This Butterfly can be shy, so plenty of rock work is recommended to provide some hiding spaces. Although this is considered a "reef safe" Butterfly, some caution should still be taken as this fish can still nip at soft corals. Make sure to feed them a varied diet, 2-3 times a day to avoid them picking at corals.
