The Black and White Bannerfish has a very elongated white dorsal filament. It has a base color of white with two wide black stripes. The soft dorsal and caudal fins are yellow, and there are black marks above the eyes.

Members of the Heniochus genera are often called Bannerfish instead of Butterflyfish.

The Black and White Bannerfish may reside in aquariums with other peaceful fish and others of the same species, if all are introduced into the tank at the same time. When swimming, the elongated white dorsal filament moves like a banner in the wind.

This species of Butterflyfish is not considered reef safe. It prefers a diet of small meaty foods and herbivore preparations.

This species can be mistaken for the Schooling Bannerfish (H.diphreutes) however the Black and White Bannerfish has a more pronounced snout, a less robust breast and more rounded anal fin.
