Double Saddle Butterfly Fish??

Double Saddle Butterfly Fish........http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...cfm?pCatId=214

Does anyone here have any experience of keeping these fish? I am thinking about purchasing one for my FOWLR (55G). I noted on the Live Aquaria site that the care level is 'moderate'. Anything in particular I should be wary of? I can't decide between this and the Banner Fish for my tank

Any advice appreciated
TIA

Phil

I did some digging on WetWebMedia and found the necessary info.....one of the easier to keep butterflies from what I can gather.

Went ahead and got him this morning.....acclimated him for a good 2 hours (think this was where I was going wrong with my earlier fish losses). Left him for a couple of hours to get used to the tank and then added food for the Chromis......he started eating straight away and seems happy enough....very active fish
