Copper-banded butterflyfish need exceptionally clean water conditions. In a well maintained tank they will thrive in reef and live rock environments. Also known as the "beaked coral fish" the copper banded butterfly has beautiful vertical copper bands and a long long beak. Like most butterflyfish the copperband will eat reef creatures.
