What type of butterfly?

Can anyone tell me what type of butterfly fish this is? I bought it at the lfs and it was just labeled as a reef butterfly.

Looks pretty much like this Lemon butterflyfish. I would not rely on the reef safe advice your LFS gave you. IMO not true.

I agree, and it is a reef butterfly...in that it lives on the reefs. But it is not reef safe. Watch your corals.
