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 Red Sea Racoon Butterflyfish is yellow-orange, darker on the upper half of its body, and has a black patch around its eyes. It has dark diagonal lines across its body. It is a peaceful fish and may reside in an aquarium with other butterflyfish. It should not be put into a reef tank environment because it will eat invertebrates. Feed the Red Sea Raccoon Butterflyfish a varied diet of meaty foods, crustacean flesh, mysis shrimp, and frozen preparations. This species can be mistaken for the Racoon Butterflyfish (C.lunula), the Red Sea Racoon Butterflyfish differs in lacking a black spot on the caudal fin base and the yellow diagonal stripes behind the head, as well as having fewer slanting stripes not the sides of the body.
