      Scientific Name: Chaetodon fremblii
      Max. size: 13.0 cm TL (male/unsexed)
      Environment: reef-associated; non-migratory; marine; depth range 4 - 65 m
      Distribution: Eastern Pacific = endemic to the Hawaiian Islands.
      Morphology: Dorsal spines (total): 12-14; Dorsal soft rays (total): 20-21; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 16-18
      Biology: Inhabits areas with rock or coral. Preys on the tentacles of tubeworms and other invertebrates.
      Aquarium Care: Can be kept with some soft corals (i.e. Sinularia flexibilis, Dendronephthya, Litophyton, and Lemnalia), but will nip at SPS and LPS. This species has medium survivability in captivity. It is somewhat hardy, but shy and will eat most aquarium foods. In order for the Bluestriped Butterfly to maintain health, house with non-aggressive tankmates. Can be kept in pairs if introduced together. Will have a nocturnal coloration when frightened (dirty yellow or blotchy color).
