Overview

Be the first to invest in this highly-prized showcase aquarium superstar! The Red Sea Bannerfish is exclusive to the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden to the south. It has a very elongated white dorsal filament with a base color of white with two wide black stripes. The soft dorsal and caudal fins are yellow, and there are black marks above the eyes. Members of the Heniochus genera are often called Bannerfish instead of Butterflyfish.

The Red Sea Bannerfish may reside in a 125 gallon or larger aquarium with other peaceful fish and others of the same species, if all were introduced into the tank at the same time. When swimming, the elongated white dorsal filament moves like a banner in the wind.

Heniochus are largely plankton eaters in the wild. A diet of frozen, freeze-dried, fresh or flake food is readily accepted. Also provide regular vegetable food source and vitamin-boosting supplements.

Approximate Purchase Size: Small: 1-1/2" to 2-1/2"; Medium: 2-1/2" to 3-1/2" Large: 3-1/2" to 4-1/2"; XLarge: 4-1/2" to 6"
