Livestock arrives in and out of stock very regularly, depending upon availability of the item from the source. The more rare and expensive items are often difficult to hold in stock, and can take time to source, so we generally require a deposit to locate and purchase the extremely rare items

The Black Back Butterflyfish has a white body with a series of black diagonal stripes on the sides. The fins are yellow and it has a yellow face with a black eye band. The Black Back Butterflyfish should be the only butterflyfish, unless it has a mate, in an aquarium that has numerous hiding places and plenty of room to swim. This species of Butterflyfish is not considered reef safe. The Black Back Butterflyfish eats a variety of meaty preparations that should incorporate a vitamin or colour enhancing food to keep its colours crisp. It eats soft corals in the wild.
