The Pebble Butterflyfish is also known as the Multiband Butterflyfish, Pebbled Butterflyfish, Many Banded Butterfly Fish, and Hawaiian Pebble Butterflyfish. It has a subtle color pattern. Its body is a creamy white with five or six tan bands running vertically. There is also a dark vertical eye bar and a black band in the tail fin. If keeping a pair, they should be added at the same time to avoid aggression. The tank should also be decorated with rocks creating many caves for hiding places and lots of rocky rubble. Also make sure there is plenty of open swimming space, as it swims freely and usually spends a good deal of its time in the open water, moving in and out of crevices. Pebbled Butterflyfish are not considered reef safe.
