Sunburst Butterflyfish is also known as Klein’s Butterflyfish, Black-lipped Butterfly, and Orange Butterflyfish. The Klein’s Butterflyfish should only be with the same species if introduced to a tank together. Otherwise fist come first dibs and they will see the newcomer as competition. This is a good fish for a reef aquarium….but they do have the tendency to eat leather and soft corals.
