African Butterfly Fish
This top dwelling fish is found throughout the lakes of Africa, often hidden among floating plants and natural debris for cover. In the aquarium, it is very important to have a very secure top to keep the fish from jumping out, which it is very capable of doing. This fish is a carnivore and will benefit from feedings of occasional small live food in addition to floating carnivore pellets.
