Hey guys,
I am in the process of setting up a new 90 gallon (I have a thread going in the tank threads section). My brother in law is taking down his tank and converting it to freshwater at the same time, so he has offered me his fish.

I wanted to know if any of you have any experience with a Pakistani Butterflyfish, as that is one he is offering me for free.

He referred to it as an Angelfish, but I'm fairly sure its actually a butterflyfish. The tank it will be going into is a 90 gallon. Mixed reef, 70% LPS, 20% SPS, 10% zoas and softies.

I don't plan to have any other butterfly fish, but I'd like to know if it's compatable with my reef and other fish. I have tangs, a flame angel, clowns, wrasses, damsels, anthias, firefish, bennies, gobbies.

Are any of these fish, or my coral going to be a problem with this fish.

As I'm upgrading to a new tank now I can add this fish in any order or at the same time as my others to smooth the transition and lessen aggression.

Here is a picture of the fish.

Love them!
Put it in your tank, or in my tank.

Your LPS will be in danger depending on what type you have or what taste the b/f has.  No fish is completely reef safe, but the odds are higher on this one of being Not safe.  But then again, I would put it in my tank in a heartbeat.
