Black and White Heniochus

Scientific Name: Heniochus acuminatus

Reef Compatibility: With Caution

Minimum Tank Size: 55 gal

Max Size: 9.9”

Food/Feeding: Omnivore

Notes: The Black and White Heniochus also called the Bannerfish or Longfin Bannerfish is a real eye-catcher. This is a graceful butterflyfish with a beautiful and unusual appearance. It's a good sized fish that can attain a length of almost 10 inches in the wild, though it is more common at about 6 - 8 inches in the aquarium. It's colored with a bold pattern of white and black bands contrasted with bright yellow fins and it has a wonderful long extension to its dorsal fin. There are a number of rather descriptive common names including Longfin Bannerfish, Bannerfish, Pennant Coralfish, Wimple Fish, Featherfin Coralfish, Coachman, Threadback, and Reef Bannerfish.

This is a very popular butterflyfish and an excellent choice for the aquarists with some experience, especially for an aquarist who craves having a Moorish Idol Zanclus cornutus. These two species are quite similar in appearance but the Black and White Heniochus is hardier and much easier to care for.
