Yellow Longnose Butterflyfish

The Yellow Longnose Butterflyfish (Forcipiger flavissimus) is a species of butterflyfish in the genus Forcipiger.

It is also known as the Forcepsfish.

It is similar in appearance to and found in the same range as the less common Forcipiger longirostris.

Together, the two species are collectively known in the Hawaiian language as lauwiliwilinukunuku?oi?oi, or "long-snouted (sharp-beaked) fish shaped like a wiliwili leaf".

This is a good first butterfly purchase, though not necessarily for a beginning hobbyist.

If acclimated properly, Longnose Butterflyfish are a hardy addition to any fish-only system.

Minimum tank size:

It does best if kept in a 70 gallon or larger tank with peaceful tankmates.

Feeding and diet:

Carnivorous, feed marine fish, crustacean flesh, mysid shrimp and frozen preparations.

Reef Compatibility:

Most individuals can be kept in a reef tank with most soft corals and small-polyped stony corals, although some may nip at large-polyped stony corals, certain soft corals (including xeniids and clavulariids) and zoanthids (e.g., Parazoanthus spp.).

Level of Care: Moderate

Approximate Purchase Size:

Small: 1-1/2" to 2-1/2"; Medium: 2-1/2" to 4"; Large: 4" to 6"
