The Four-Eyed, or Foureye Butterflyfish, is an exquisite creature that belongs to the Chaetodontidae family. With two false eyespots on either base of the caudal fin, it is endowed with both beauty and an impressive defense mechanism. Its creamy-white body is accented with iridescent stripes and a vibrant yellow outline, making it an absolute delight to behold. Not only does the Four-Eyed Butterflyfish boast its captivating physical features, but it also possesses an impressive ability to misdirect predators. With its great looks and cunning instincts, it is no wonder why it is a highly sought-after species.
The Four-Eyed Butterfly is a peaceful fish that should be housed with other peaceful tankmates. It is possible to keep a male-female pair, but members of the same sex may fight. It is not suitable for the reef aquarium, as it enjoys eating stony corals and gorgonian polyps.
