I'm a brand spankin' new saltwater aquarium hobbyist. In addition, I'm a big butterfly fish nut (hence the nickname.) My question for all those more experience than I is, if I wanted to have a tank with nothing but butterfly fish, will they all be compatible with each other. All the compatibility lists I've looked at address other species of fish, but don't mention other butterflies.

Thanks.

I don't know much about butterfly fish....but I wouldn't suggest putting them in a saltwater aquarium, it'll dehydrate them and they will die, because they are freshwater!!!! =p
I'd stick with saltwater though because they are generaly more colourfull and exciting.

Although I don't know much about saltwater I would like to welcome you to FishLore. Mike is our saltwater man and he'll probably be around soon
There are some really pretty saltwater butterfly fish. Here are some samples.

Do you have a favorite ? or just like all butterflyfish?

I pretty much like all butterflyfish. not sure why. when I dive I find myself hanging out with them while they do what they do.

I know me too but did a search for saltwater butterflys and there they were. Both fresh and saltwater butterflys are intriguing.
Didn't think to look in our own FishLore profiles. DUH!
