Re:Any butterflies/d. angels more compatible w/ SHs?


Well it certainly sounds like you did your homework which is commendable.

My first question would be what is the size of your tank?

My other question is why would you want a fish you may rarely see?
If you rarely see it you will not know if it is eating and assessing its health will be difficult. That is my first concern.

My other concern is related to both the fish you mentioned are considered delicate. Most fish get this label because they do not do well in captivity for a variety of reasons. It’s my personal opinion that these fish should be left in the ocean.

CCB are known to be difficult feeders.

I have experimented with many fish over the years and I can tell you from personal experience that the fish that are not on the list of recommended seahorse tankmates are not on that list for very good reasons.

I addressed my desire for a variety of fish by setting up additional tanks and that is what I usually recommend folks who want fish that are not seahorse safe do. There are a number of wonderful, fun and colorful fish that are seahorse safe, I would suggest you stick with any of those and stay away from the butterfly and dwarf angels.
