Butterfly, Truncatus (Australia)

Product Description

Product Description

Rarely ever seen in the U.S. trade, nevertheless, maintained by Western Australian aquarists. Resembles the Copperband in body and fin shape, and also has the long narrow snout used to search crevices for food, and a black false eyespot on the rear upper body and lower dorsal fin. The biggest exception is that of coloration, as it has a darkish tan body with five black vertical white edged bands and that its a somewhat cooler water species, requiring aquarium temperatures in the low 70s.
