Nice! Seems like a good fit. I like the Pakistan butterfly mostly because it is not yellow. I don't need more yellow in the tank. Only downside I see is they require several feedings a day. Anyone own one and can verify feeding habits?

I'd kinda stay away from butterflys, they are a hard to keep species. I have only had one success out of 4 that I have had. Thery are extremely picky eaters and are delicate as well.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Def. Fed them freeze dried shrimp and they ate it up. I read this caution and it happened. One of them got trapped in my net transferring them in. That was a touchy situation. Hope to never have to do that with them again.
