Long Nose Butterflyfish (Forcipiger flavissimus)

The Long Nose Butterfly is a peculiar looking fish. Its long nose suggests a very selective feeding strategy, which in theory would make it hard to look after. Thankfully this is not the case and Long Nose Butterfly's make a welcome addition to reef tanks. 

They also eat aiptasia which is a added bonus when looking at buying this exquisite fish. They usually only accept frozen food including brine,mysis and krill, but after a while may move on to eating prepared foods like flake and pellets.
