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 Dot Dash Butterflyfish has an oval shape and has beautiful yellow to orange hues covering the majority of the body. The black bands are orientated in a diagonal fashion and the fins are outlined in a striking yellow. It is best housed in very large, peaceful community aquariums decorated with large amounts of live rock. It should be kept singly, not with similar butterflyfish, and should not be kept with any stress-inducing fish. It should not be housed in a reef aquarium since it tends to eat most invertebrates and nip at corals. The Dot Dash Butterflyfish is a shy feeder that may need a variety of foods offered to it in order to start feeding. Feed a variety of frozen and live foods including; mysis shrimp, vitamin enriched brine shrimp, frozen whole cockle and seaweed based foods.
