Yellow Zoster Butterflyfish (Peaceful)
The Zoster Butterfly is also known as the Yellow Zoster Butterflyfish or Yellow Pyramid Butterflyfish, this saltwater aquarium fish occurs in large numbers among the reefs of the Indian Ocean. The fins are yellow in color, and the body is mostly white. The white coloration forms a triangle with the yellow fins, lending it its common name. The head area is black helping these fish camouflage themselves in the wild. The Pyramid Butterfly feeds upon plankton in the wild, and is safe for reef aquariums. The Pyramid Butterflyfish is quite shy at first, and should be provided multiple hiding places.
