Butterfly, Auriga

Product Description

Product Description

This is one of the most attractive species in this very large genus, having a silvery body with a black band covering the eyes, two differently placed slanted black lines on the body, a black eye-spot on the upper aft of the dorsal fin (Red Sea specimens lack the eye-spot) and its dorsal, anal and tail is bright yellow, as is the upper aft portion of the body. Its also by far one of the easiest to maintain since it often readily accepts a wide range of foodstuffs.
