Copperband Butterflyfish | Chelmon rostratus

"Copperband Butterflyfish is best housed in very large reefs, or in peaceful community tanks. It should be kept singly, not with conspecifics or similar butterflyfish, and should not be kept with any stress-inducing fish. Caution should be exercised if housing these fish in a reef aquarium. They may pick on invertebrates, especially anemones and feather dusters. They are an excellent fish when used to control aiptasia, or glass anemones, in the reef aquarium.” -

Raccoon Butterflyfish | Pomacentrus lunula

“Named for the black mask-like marking over it’s eyes, the Raccoon Butterflyfish is a hardy Butterflyfish that is well known for eating almost any type of anemone. This is especially useful if you have problems with Aiptaisia or Majano anemones. Like the mammal to which it is named after, the Raccoon Butterflyfish is predominately a nocturnal feeder but will increase with activity during the daytime photoperiod as it grows accustomed to the bright lighting in the aquarium. If you intend on keeping more than one Raccoon Butterflyfish in your aquarium it is best to purchase two of the same size and introduce them to the aquarium at the same time. They may chase each other but it is rare that any damage is done.” -
