Captive Care: The Heniochus genus has a few commendable Butterflyfishes. Most enjoy how sturdy, bold species schools readily in captivity, but need plenty of swimming space. These fish will do best in a peaceful tank. All Schooling Bannerfish should be added to the tank at the same time as these fish will create a hierarchy. If you are lucky they will engage in cleaning behavior with other fish. This is simply a stunning fish!
